Goals of the Monte-Carlo working group

Develop a general framework and numerical implementations of different approaches to jet modification
in a medium, incorporating elastic and radiative energy loss,  flavor conversion, quark mass dependence
(heavy quarks) and exact four-momentum conservation. Develop Monte-Carlo simulation codes in the
form of Open Source Codes and Algorithmic Routines (OSCAR) and make them available to the entire
heavy-ion community.

Year 1
Start to develop a Monte Carlo description of jet evolution and propagation in dense medium.

Year 2
Continue to develop a Monte Carlo description of jet evolution and propagation in dense medium,
including jet-.field interaction, rescattering of radiated gluons and the recoil of thermal medium
partons.

Year 3

Complete the development of a Monte Carlo description of jet evolution and propagation in dense
medium with consistent description of both collinear and hard medium-induced gluon emission, in-
cluding both elastic and inelastic processes,  flavor conversion, recoil of the thermal medium partons.

Year 4

Develop the Jet and Electromagnetic Tomography (JET) program packages of Monte Carlo simula-
tion of jet propagation and evolution in the form of Open Source Codes and Algorithmic Routines
(OSCAR) for use in phenomenological analyses of experimental data.
