Abstract

We use (3+1)-dimensional ideal hydrodynamics to describe a variety of different jet energy loss scenarios for a jet propagating through an opaque medium. The conical correlations obtained for fully stopped jets, revealing a Bragg peak, are discussed as well as results from pQCD and AdS/CFT. Moreover, we investigate transverse flow deflection. It is demonstrated that a double-peaked away-side structure can be formed due to the different contributions of several possible jet trajectories through an expanding medium.
