Jets with ALICE: from vacuum to QCD at high temperatures

Leticia Cunqueiro, University of Mnster, Germany
Bldg. 6008 Large Conference Room

The hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions is expected to modify the yield and radiation pattern of jets relative to proton proton collisions. The study of medium-induced mod- ifications in jets aims at the understanding of the detailed mechanisms of in medium energy loss of partons and of fundamental properties of QCD at high temperatures. ALICE measures jets in pp, pPb and PbPb collisions, where pp and pPb are conceived primarily as a reference for vacuum and cold nuclear effects respectively.

The jet program comprises measurements like yields for different resolution R, intra-jet and inter- jet modifications via jet shapes and hadron-jet correlations, path length dependence of energy loss via jet flow v2, hadrochemistry via jet constituent identification, flavour/mass hierarchy of energy loss via heavy flavour tagging etc.

Several of the latest ALICE jet physics results will be presented and discussed with emphasis on new studies on jet substructure and jet shapes.
