Resolving the RAA to vn puzzle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


After 10 years of struggling to simultaneously describe the nuclear modification factor RAA and flow harmonics vn's at high pT, now theoretical models are able to reproduce experimental data well. The necessary theoretical developments such as event-by-event fluctuations, choice of initial conditions, and the scalar product method to calculate flow harmonics at high pT are reviewed. Additionally, a discussion of new proposed experimental observables known as Soft Hard Event Engineering (SHEE) that are sensitive to the path length dependence of the energy loss is included.
