Overview

Collaboration Mission

JET Collaborations is formed to :
  • extend the theoretical framework for jet-medium interaction beyond soft and collinear approximations and thereby reduce uncertainties intrinsic to the current theoretical studies;
  • develop new and powerful Monte-Carlo algorithms for jet propagation and evolution inside a dynamic medium;
  • implement a realistic space-time evolution of the bulk medium in the jet-medium interaction as described by a combination of viscous hydrodynamics with parton and hadron cascades;
  • carry out systematic phenomenological studies of experimental data on single hadron (including heavy flavors) and photon spectra, multi-hadron and gamma-hadron correlation and jet shape.
The JET Collaboration will provide a unique environment conducive to collaborative work and know-how transfer among participating scientists, for close interaction between theorists and experimentalists and for training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with annual summer schools.
