Description

The ALICE experiment is designed to study the hot and dense medium, the quark-gluon plasma, produced in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. Measuring the
production of hadrons with large Q2 transfer in these collisions provides the possibility to explore one of the most spectacular effects -- parton energy loss in hot QCD matter. By varying the observables among light- and heavy-flavor hadrons and fully reconstructed jets and by changing the colliding systems from pp to p-Pb to Pb-Pb, one can explore the transport properties of hot QCD matter in great detail.

In this talk we present an overview of recent ALICE results on high-pT hadron and jet production in pp, pA and AA collisions at LHC energies.
