Workshop 1


High Momentum Probes and the Medium's Response

Date: Tuesday, May 27, 2008  
Organizers: Helen Caines and Anne Sickles
Time: Full Day  
Location: Berkner Hall, Room B - Bldg. 488
This workshop aims to cover both theory and experimental progress in determining how high momentum probes interact with the medium produced at RHIC. Early results using correlations of high momentum particles indicate that when energetic parton pass through the hot and dense medium they deposit significant energy. There is a substantial modification of the away-side jet peak as well as evidence of a near-side long range pseudorapidity correlation known as the "ridge". This workshop will cover recent developments in our understanding of both these phenomena.
