Semihard scattering of partons at [Formula Presented] vs 200 GeV: A study in contrast


Journal Article

We analyze the contribution of perturbative QCD based semihard parton (re)scattering to the reaction dynamics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions at SPS and RHIC. While such processes are able to account for the measured yield of high-momentum direct photons at SPS energies, the conditions necessary for jet quenching are not fulfilled. The situation changes dramatically at RHIC energies. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
