The transverse momentum di-jet imbalance $A_J$ presents a powerful and robust tool to explore the strong medium modification that has been found in central 200 GeV Au+Au collisions at RHIC in numerous statistical observables. In the presented study, we focus on a set of di-jets biased toward imbalance by requiring $p_T>20$~GeV/$c$ for the leading jet, $p_T>10$~GeV/$c$ for the sub-leading jet,...

Di-hadron correlations and jet-hadron correlations are useful tools for studying interactions between jets and the strongly interacting medium created in high energy heavy ion collisions. Jet-hadron correlations will be particularly useful for measurements of the low momentum component of jets. However, the background in these studies are large and are correlated with the signal. The...
