"Jet quenching at RHIC and LHC: a biased status report"

Presented by Peter Jacobs, LBNL

Tuesday, February 2, 2021, 11:00 am — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Abstract: There has been an explosion of new jet quenching observables and measurements in the past few years, whose connections and overall physics message are perhaps difficult to discern. I will suggest a framework to think about them in a unified way and then discuss a few recent results from STAR@RHIC and ALICE@LHC, with focus on inclusive jet suppression, in-medium jet scattering, and quantitative comparison of jet quenching phenomenology at the two colliders. Time permitting, I will also discuss the JETSCAPE Theory/Experiment collaboration approach to a comprehensive understanding of jet quenching, and its prospects.
