PHENIX has measured jet yields in p+p and d+Au collisions at 200 GeV [1].
In minimum bias collisions, the nuclear modification factor R_dAu is
consistent with unity. However, in centrality selected events R_dAu
exibits large pT-dependent deviations from unity, challenging
conventional models that relate hard-process rates and soft-particle
productin in nuclear collisions. Comparison of jet production and
high pT pi0 production in small system can shed light on the
surprising centrality dependence of jets. We will present the jet
results and the latest status of the comparison with pi0 production.
