In this paper we present a study of in-medium jet modifications performed with JEWEL and PYTHIA 6.4, focusing on the uncertainties related to variations of the perturbative scales and nuclear parton distribution functions (PDFs) and on the impact of the initial and crossover temperature variations of the medium. The simulations are compared to LHC data for the jet spectrum and the nuclear modification factor. We assess the interplay between the choice of nuclear PDFs and different medium… 
Study of Jet Modification in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions
The study of jets, algorithmic representations of collimated sprays of particles, in relativistic heavy-ion collisions can illuminate the underlying physics of heavy ion experiments, as the ones in
Jet radiation in a longitudinally expanding medium
In a series of previous papers, we have presented a new approach, based on perturbative QCD, for the evolution of a jet in a dense quark-gluon plasma. In the original formulation, the plasma was


EPS09: A New Generation of NLO and LO Nuclear Parton Distribution Functions
We present a next-to-leading order (NLO) global DGLAP analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs) and their uncertainties. Carrying out an NLO nPDF analysis for the first time with
Open-source QCD analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions at NLO and NNLO
We present new sets of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs) at next-to-leading order and next-to-next-to-leading order. Our analyses are based on deeply inelastic scattering data with
nCTEQ15: Global analysis of nuclear parton distributions with uncertainties in the CTEQ framework
We present the new nCTEQ15 set of nuclear parton distribution functions with uncertainties. This fit extends the CTEQ proton PDFs to include the nuclear dependence using data on nuclei all the way up
Nuclear parton density functions from jet production in DIS at an EIC
We investigate the potential of inclusive-jet production in deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) at a future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) to improve our current knowledge of nuclear parton density
A Monte Carlo model for ‘jet quenching’
We have developed the Monte Carlo simulation program Jewel 1.0 (Jet Evolution With Energy Loss), which interfaces a perturbative final-state parton shower with medium effects occurring in
Analysis of combined HERA data in the impact-parameter dependent saturation model
The Impact-Parameter dependent Saturation Model (IP-Sat) is a simple dipole model that incorporates key features of the physics of gluon saturation and matches smoothly to the perturbative QCD dipole
Jet Shapes in ep and pp Collisions in NLO QCD
We have calculated jet shapes in low Q2 ep and pp collisions in perturbation theory at order αs for the hard parton-parton processes. For the γp process resolved and direct contributions are
Nuclear parton distributions from lepton-nucleus scattering and the impact of an electron-ion collider
We present a first determination of the nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDF) based on the NNPDF methodology: nNNPDF1.0. This analysis is based on neutral-current deep-inelastic structure
