Abstract: High pT jet correlations as a probe of the QGP
Angular correlations involving high-pT particles associated with partonic jet fragmentation provide an important opportunity to study
the hot nuclear matter produced in A+A collisions, particularly when compared against a p+p reference. Recent
di-jet correlations results suggest that observables characterizing jet shapes in Au+Au and p+p approach comparable values
at high pT, leading to questions about experimental accessibility to quenched partons and the nature of
medium-induced energy loss. The latest high-pT di-jet correlations results from the PHENIX experiment will be presented,
as well as a discussion of their interpretation.
