Anisotropic flow background to jet-correlation relative to reaction plane: a revisit of the mathematical framework

Abstract

We derive the flow-background formula for jet-correlation analysis with high p T trigger particles in any azimuth window relative to reaction plane, extending the mathematic framework of previous study in [1]. Strong interaction of hard-scattering partons with the high density medium 1 created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions results in modification to jet-correlation 2 with high transverse momentum (p T) trigger particles due to jet energy loss [2,3,4]. 3 The away-side correlation opposite to the trigger particle was found to be 4 strongly modified [5,6]; the correlation structure is significantly broadened, 5 and the lost energy is dissipated into low p T particles [5] and appears to ex-6
