"Jet quenching in DIS and heavy-ion collisions: moving towards a more quantitative approach"

Presented by Abhijit Majumdar, Ohio State University

Thursday, November 18, 2010, 12:30 pm — Bldg 510, room 2-220

The modification of hard jets in dense extended media such as large nuclei or a deconfined quark gluon
plasma will be described in a factorized formalism where the hard partons couple weakly with the medium, where the
medium may itself be strongly or weakly coupled. The effect of the medium will be parametrized in a handful of transport
coefficients which are obtained as the in-medium expectation of well defined operator products. We will attempt to describe
the attenuation of the yield of leading hadrons in DIS and heavy-ion collisions (HIC) as well as the centrality, azimuthal anisotropy and flavor dependence (in HIC) in a single formalism. Also preliminary results from a new Monte-Carlo event generator based on this formalism will be presented.
