Title: Medium Response to Jets in Heavy Ion Collisions

Speaker: Yasuki Tachibana (Wayne State University)


We study the jet structure modification in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) with the inclusion of the medium response effect.  The jet structures in heavy ion collisions are significantly modified by the processes involving strong interactions with the QGP fluid.  Meanwhile, the jets are supposed to deposit their energy and momentum through these interactions and cause flows as the hydrodynamic medium response in the QGP fluid.  The particles produced from the jet-induced flow are observed as part of the jets, and also modify the jet structures in the final state.  We apply coupled jet-fluid model consisting of jet transport equations and relativistic hydrodynamics equations with source terms to perform the simulations of jet events and study how the hydrodynamic medium response can contribute to the jet observables in heavy ion collisions.
