Phenomenology of jet quenching in heavy ion collisions


Journal Article

We derive an analytical expression for the quenching factor in the strong quenching limit where the pTspectrum of hard partons is dominated by surface emission. We explore the phenomenological consequences of different scaling laws for the energy loss and calculate the additional suppression of the away-side jet.
