Jet quenching at RHIC and LHC: a biased status report

by Peter Jacobs (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)




There has been an explosion of new jet quenching observables and measurements in the past few years, whose connections and overall physics message are perhaps difficult to discern. I will suggest a framework to think about them in a unified way and then discuss a few recent results from STAR@RHIC and ALICE@LHC, with focus on inclusive jet suppression, in-medium jet scattering, and quantitative comparison of jet quenching phenomenology at the two colliders. Time permitting, I will also discuss the JETSCAPE Theory/Experiment collaboration approach to a comprehensive understanding of jet quenching, and its prospects.
