Systematic Monte-Carlo studies of dijets at RHIC using the VNI/BMS Parton Cascade


Journal Article

We present a study of the dijet suppression at RHIC using the parton cascade model. We examine the modification of the dijet asymmetry A j and the fragmentation distributions z and j T in terms of: q̂; the path length of leading and sub-leading jets; cuts on the jet energy distributions; jet cone angle and the jet-medium interaction mechanism. We have introduced a string hadronization model and present hadronic jet fragmentation distributions. We find that A j is most sensitive to q̂ and less sensitive to the nature of the jet-medium interaction mechanism. The fragmentation distributions show jet modification and differentiate between elastic and radiative+elastic modes. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
