Abstract

Over the past 30 years, jet observables have proven to provide important information about the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy-ion collisions. I review the challenges, results, and open problems of jet physics in heavy-ion collisions, discussing the main ideas as well as some most recent results focussing on two major jet observables, the nuclear modification factor and the high-\(p_T\) elliptic flow.

Keywords

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

Acknowledgments

The author thanks C. Greiner, M. Gyulassy, J. Noronha-Hostler, J. Noronha, F. Senzel, and J. Xu for the fruitful collaboration as well as U. Heinz and C. Shen for providing their hydrodynamic field grids. This work was supported through the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung under project number 05P2015, the Helmholtz International Centre for FAIR within the framework of the LOEWE program (Landesoffensive zur Entwicklung Wissenschaftlich-Ökonomischer Exzellenz) launched by the State of Hesse. The author thanks the organizers of the Symposium on “New Horizons in Fundamental Physics” for an inspriring workshop celebrating Walter Greiner’s 80th birthday.
