The inclusive production of the charmonium state was studied in p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at = 8.16 TeV and 5.02 TeV respectively, using the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC. The is less bound than the and it represents an interesting probe for the study of cold nuclear matter effects in p-Pb collisions, while in the Pb-Pb system its formation can be strongly influenced by QGP production. The measurements are performed in different center-of-mass rapidity ranges, 2.03 < < 3.53 and −4.46 < < −2.96 for p-Pb collisions and 2.5 < < 4.0 for Pb-Pb collisions, down to zero transverse momentum, through the decay channel. The results are compared to those obtained for the and with theoretical predictions.
