Jet modifications in event-by-event hydrodynamically evolving media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The nearly perfect fluid-like nature of the Quark Gluon Plasma may be understood through two key experimental signatures: collective flow and jet suppression. Event-by-event relativistic viscous hydrodynamics (with an extremely small shear viscosity to entropy density ratio) has been very successful at describing collective flow observables for the last 7 years. More recently, the effects of event-by-event fluctuations have been studied in the context of high pT particles that lose energy as they pass through the dense Quark Gluon Plasma liquid. In this summary of the corresponding plenary talk at Quark Matter 2017, the recent developments on the effects of event-by-event fluctuations on jet suppression are summarized.
