Abstract: Heavy-quark energy loss in finite-extend strongly-coupled SYM plasma.

Within the trailing string picture of medium-induced energy loss and p_T-broadening in Super Yang Mills (SYM) theory, the problem of finite extend plasma is addressed. When expressed in terms of the appropriate saturation momentum, one finds identical parametric forms for energy loss in pQCD and SYM theory, while p_T-broadening is radiation dominated in SYM theory and multiple scattering dominated in pQCD.
