We present a new determination of q̂, the jet transport coefficient of the quark-gluon plasma. Using the JETSCAPE framework, we use Bayesian parameter estimation to constrain the dependence of q̂ on the jet energy, virtuality, and medium temperature from experimental measurements of inclusive hadron suppression in Au-Au collisions at RHIC and Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC. These results are based on a multi-stage theoretical approach to in-medium jet evolution with the MATTER and LBT jet…

We present the first calculation of the jet transport coefficient $\hat{q}$ in (2+1)-flavor QCD on a 4-dimensional Euclidean lattice. Carried out in a factorized approach, the light-like propagation

QGP modification to single inclusive jets in a calibrated transport model

Abstract We study inclusive jet suppression and modifications in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) with a transport-based model. The model includes vacuum-like parton shower evolution at high-virtuality,

We quantitatively estimate properties of the quark-gluon plasma created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions utilizing Bayesian statistics and a multiparameter model-to-data comparison. The

Energy versus centrality dependence of the jet quenching parameter $$\hat{q}$$q^ at RHIC and LHC: a new puzzle?

The central goal of jet quenching studies in high-energy nuclear collisions is the characterization of those QCD medium properties that are accessible by these probes, and an extraction of this parameter using data of inclusive particle suppression at RHIC and LHC energies for different centralities is presented.
