Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Reconstructing jets in heavy-ion collisions"

Presented by Gregory Soyez, CERN, Switzerland

Friday, March 12, 2010, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Recently, experimental collaborations at RHIC have come out with the first jet measurements in heavy-ion collisions ever. Because of the busy environment produced in these collisions, this jet reconstruction has long been thought of as unfeasible. In this talk, I will discuss the main ingredients that are used to subtract these large background contributions. I will start with a brief review of what has already been used, then concentrate on potentially new and promising techniques, attempting to improve that mandatory subtraction.
