"Resolving Power of Jets in Hot QCD"

Coffee and cookies will be served at 3:45pm in RLM 4.102

Abstract: The phase diagram of QCD matter has been extensively studied with ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have been delivering heavy ion collisions (Pb+Pb) along with reference data of pp and p+Pb collisions since 2010. With its unprecedented reach in energy, LHC explores new regions of the phase diagram of Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) that can resolve fundamental questions regarding quark confinement, such as ``What determines the key features of QCD?" and "How does the hot QCD respond to jet energy loss?”. We have performed multiple, complementary jet measurements at LHC using the CMS detector to answer these questions. This talk will present an overview of our experimental results that reveal detailed properties of the hot QCD matter with a brief look at future measurements.
