Implementing the LPM effect in a parton cascade model


Journal Article

Parton Cascade Models which describe the full time-evolution of a system of quarks and gluons using pQCD interactions are ideally suited for the description of jet production, including the emission, evolution and energy-loss of the full parton shower in a hot and dense QCD medium. The Landau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal (LPM) effect the quantum interference of parton wave functions due to repeated scatterings against the background medium, is likely the dominant in-medium effect affecting jet suppression. We have implemented a probabilistic implementation of the LPM effect within the PCM which can be validated against previously derived analytical calculations by Baier et al (BDMPS-Z) Presented at the 6th International Conference on Physics and Astrophysics of Quark Gluon Plasma (ICPAQGP 2010). © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
