Description

This work is focused on the influence of energy deposited by jets in the
medium on the behavior of bulk nuclear matter.
In the heavy ion reactions jets are widely used as probes in the study
of Quark-Gluon-Plasma (QGP). Modeling using relativistic hydrodynamics with
jets perturbation is employed to extract the properties of the QGP.
In order to observe a modification of the collective characteristic of
the matter, we use our (3+1) relativistic hydrodynamic code and jet
energy loss algorithm implemented on the Graphics Cards (GPU).

The program uses 7th order WENO algorithm and the Cartesian coordinate
system to provide high spatial resolution and high accuracy in
hydrodynamic simulations required to analyze the propagation of jets in
the nuclear matter. We present how the propagation of jets in the medium
could affect the measurements of the properties of a strongly
interacting nuclear matter.
