Full Jet Reconstruction In Heavy Ion Collisions: Prospects and Perils
Presented by Dr. Sevil SALUR on 31 Jul 2009 from 16:30 to 17:00
Session: Heavy Ions III
Track: Heavy Ion Physics/Hot and Dense QCD
Full jet reconstruction has traditionally been thought to be difficult in heavy ion events, due to large multiplicity backgrounds. The search for new physics in high luminosity p+p collisions at the LHC similarly requires the precise measurement of jets over large backgrounds due to pile up, and has motivated the development a new generation of jet reconstruction algorithms which are also applicable in the heavy ion environment. In this talk I will review the latest results on jet-medium interactions as seen in A+A collisions at RHIC, focusing on the new techniques for full jet reconstruction. We will assess the implications of these results for the LHC.
