Description

Jets provide a powerful tool for probing the dynamics of the quark-gluon plasma created in Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC. The modification of high-pT parton showers as they propagate in the quark-gluon plasma, often referred to as "jet quenching", provides insight on the short-distance dynamics of the plasma. Jet quenching has been observed in a variety of single jet, dijet, and photon-jet measurements at the LHC as well as in measurements of modified production of charged-particle These results will be presented along with a survey of results of control measurements in Pb+Pb and p+Pb collisions including electroweak final states.
