Description

In-medium modification of jet fragmentation functions in heavy ion collisions is thought to be a direct manifest of the parton energy loss in the medium. Despite the large energy loss signaled by the large imbalance of jet transverse energies in di-jet events[1] and by the suppression of large transverse momentum hadrons [2], it has been found that jet fragmentation functions in Pb-Pb collisions are very similar to the ones measured in p-p collisions[3]. The ALICE experiment has utilized particle correlations to address modification of jet properties in Pb-Pb collisions compared with p-p collisions at the LHC. Furthermore, particle correlations were used to separate particles associated with the jet and those produced with the bulk, as well as to study number and transverse momentum correlation functions in heavy ion collisions. These might help to quantify medium modifications of the parton shower and the response of the surrounding medium. In this talk, we present the latest results on $\Delta\phi$, $\Delta\eta$ and $\Delta\p_{T}$ correlations as well as jet-fragmentation transverse momentum distribution as a function of centrality and transverse momentum. Identified particle ratios of particles associated with the jet and those from the bulk will be discussed. [1] Phys. Rev. Lett. 105 (2010) 252303. [2] Phys. Lett. B696, 30-39 (2011).
