Description

The development of a background field approach to parton propagation in matter, building upon soft-collinear effective theory, has allowed us to derive light parton splitting functions a take first steps toward unifying parton showers in proton and heavy in collisions. In this talk I will describe how the in-medium modification of parton showers can be extended to heavy quark jets. I will further present a consistent calculation of inclusive heavy meson and light jet production at next-to-leading order in nucleus-nucleus collisions. The connection to energy loss heavy ion phenomenology will be elucidated and comparisons presented to recent LHC data.
