lecture Jet physics at forward-rapidity in heavy-ion collisions
Date/Time: Thursday, 24 May 2018 - 14:30 (Europe/Rome)
Location: LNF INFN ( Aula Salvini )
Chairperson: Xin-Nian Wang (Central China Normal University and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
Description:
Jet physics plays an essential role in understanding the nuclear structure at short distance and properties of the hot and dense QCD matter in heavy-ion collisions. The forward rapidity in experiments such as LHCb provide a window for furthering these studies in a difference regime of energy and density. In this talk, I will discuss about jet and electroweak boson studies in p+A collisions which can help to provide constraints on parton distributions in large nuclei. I will also discuss jet quenching in the forward direction and their implication on jet tomography of hot QCD matter.
