Jet structure in integrated EPOS3-HQ approach
2019 January 11
We report on the first results for jet observables from a time-like parton cascade integrated with hydrodynamic evolution within the EPOS3-HQ framework. The hard (jet) partons are produced along with soft partons in the initial state EPOS approach. The soft partons, represented by strings, melt into a thermalized medium which is described by a 3 dimensional event-by-event viscous hydrodynamic approach. The jet partons then propagate in the hydrodynamically expanding medium. The total jet energy gets progressively ``degraded'' when the partons reaching a thermal energy scale are melted into the hydrodynamic medium via the source terms. The full evolution proceeds in a parallel mode, without separating the thermalized and jet parts. We demonstrate how the transverse expansion of the medium affects the jet structure, and how the medium itself is affected by the jet recoil.
