Physics Colloquium

"Jet Tomography versus Jet Holography of Quark Gluon Plasmas produced in Nuclear Collisions at RHIC and LHC Energies"

Presented by Miklos Gyulassy, Columbia University

Tuesday, March 20, 2012, 3:30 pm — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

Recent data on jet quenching in high energy nuclear collisions at RHIC and LHC energies are reviewed and current interpretations in terms QCD based jet tomography versus novel string model motivated jet holography are compared. These experiments test the Quark Gluon Plasma density and quark jet flavor dependence of high energy jet medium interactions over a very wide kinematic range. The important of future experiments on heavy flavor (charm and bottom) tagged quark jets at both RHIC and LHC to discriminate between weakly versus strongly coupled dynamics is emphasized.
