Plenary Talk Session


Gregory Soyez (IPhT, CEA Saclay)


Jets are now routinely used to probe the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. This talk is meant to report on recent work towards developing a complete picture of how parton cascades and jets form in the QGP in QCD, including both standard parton shower and medium-induced emissions. The talk will first introduce a picture valid in the leading logarithmic accuracy and then discuss its phenomenological implications, focusing mainly on the zg observable.
