Abstract

We discuss the the GLV (Gyulassy-Lévai-Vitev) Reaction Operator formalism for computing the non-Abelian energy loss of jets propagating through hot and dense matter. We incorporate our results on induced gluon bremsstrahlung together with the effects of nuclear shadowing and multiple scattering in a two-component soft+hard description of heavy ion reactions at RHIC energies. We demonstrate that good agreement between data and theory can be achieved in the measured moderate pT ≤ 5 GeV window at √s = 130 AGeV and we extend our predictions for the high-pT part of the hadronic spectra. We focus on the perspectives of using jet tomographic methods for probing not only the density and geometry of the quark-gluon plasma but also its parton composition at various center of mass energies.
