Description

Jet physics in heavy ion collisions is a rich field which has been rapidly evolving since the first observations of medium interactions at RHIC through back to back hadron correlations and at LHC via reconstructed jets. In order to completely characterize the final state via jet-medium interactions and distinguish between competing energy loss mechanisms, complementary and robust jet observables are investigated. In this talk, we will discuss the latest developments of jet finding techniques and their applications to heavy ion environments to differentiate parton flavour with emphasis on experimental results from CMS Experiment.
