Title: Surfing the wake of the jet-induced shock-wave in a quark-gluon plasma

 

Abstract: Jets in QCD have become a powerful tool in high-energy particle and nuclear physics since the concept was developed in the 70's. They have been used to study properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in high-energy heavy-ion collisions through the jet quenching phenomenon. Jet quenching is caused by parton energy loss when an energetic parton propagates through the QGP medium. Since the parton travels at the speed of light which is much faster than the velocity of sound inside a QGP, such energy loss to the medium will generate a supersonic shock wave. In this talk, I will discuss recent renewed efforts to search for such a shock wake and how to use it to study properties of the QGP in high-energy heavy-ion collisions.
