The QCD analog of the Laudau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal (LPM) effect is at the core jet quenching physics. In QCD, the medium-induced gluon radiation spectrum is suppressed in the ultraviolet due to the fact that during the quantum mechanical radiation time, that increases with the gluon frequency, multiple scattering centers act coherently as a single scattering center thus reducing the radiation...

I will discuss recent developments in the theory of jets in ultra-relativistic nuclear collision, with an emphasis on heavy flavor production. Starting with inclusive jets, I will show how the technique of semi-inclusive jet functions, first developed in the framework of soft collinear effective theory, can be applied to c-jets and b-jets in heavy ion collisions. For the case of...

Heavy ion collisions at high energies are used to study QCD at high temperatures. These high temperatures allow for the formation of a new state of matter called quark-gluon plasma (QGP) where the quarks and gluons inside of the nuclei are no longer confined. Jets are a useful probe of this medium since partons inside the jet are expected to lose energy in interactions with the strongly...

The propagation of quarks and gluons through a QCD medium, such as nuclei or the quark-gluon plasma, remains poorly understood. Elucidating this phenomena is a central aspect of the research program of a diverse variety of experiments at JLab12, RHIC, LHC and the future Electron-Ion Collider. At collider energies, this process can be studied with measurements of jet cross-sections and their...
