Abstract
Heavy ion collisions at high energies can be used as an interesting way to recreate and study
the medium of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). We particularly investigate the jets produced in
hard binary collisions and their interactions with a tentative medium. These jets were obtained
numerically from the Monte-Carlo simulations of hard collisions using the KATIE -algorithm [1],
where parton momenta within the colliding nucleons were describe by means of unintegrated
parton distribution functions (uPDF). We evolved these jets within a medium that contains both,
transverse kicks (yielding a broadening in momentum transvers to the jet-axis) as well as medium
induced radiation within the MINCAS-algorithm [2] following the works of Blaizot, Iancu, Mehtar-
Tani, Domiguez. We produce qualitative results for the decorrelation of dijets. In particular, we
study deviations from a transverse momentum broadening that follows a Gaussian distribution.
