Jet quenching in the quark-gluon plasma

13 June 2022 — 17 June 2022

Jet quenching is one of the smoking-gun signatures of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, and offers the long-term prospect to elucidate the microscopic degrees of freedom that emerge as QCD becomes deconfined. Over the past two decades, considerable progress has been made in understanding the medium modification of hard parton splittings as well as the medium’s response to jet propagation, both of which are essential ingredients needed to extract medium properties.

In this workshop, we aim to understand both common and disparate features between various theoretical approaches to jet quenching and formulate strategies to disentangle them with novel experimental measurements. By assessing the theoretical and experimental progress that has been made since the discovery of the QGP, we seek to revisit the long-term goal of extracting medium properties with jet observables and formulate a roadmap to constrain QGP properties.
