"Jet Fragmentation From Two Dimensional Field Theory"

Presented by Frasher Loshaj, Stony Brook University

Thursday, February 23, 2012, 12:30 pm — Building 510 / Room 2-160

We consider QED_2 (Schwinger Model) as a toy model for studying jet fragmentation in both vacuum and medium. Using the bosonized version of the model, we calculate the fragmentation function of jets in e^+e^- annihilation and find reasonable agreement with the data. We then apply the model to jet quenching in heavy ion collisions, and address the jet fragmentation scaling observed recently at the LHC.
