Abstract

The subject of this chapter is a series of experimental measurements of jets in relativistic heavy ion collisions which are related to the phenomenon of jet quenching. The high energy densities created in these collisions allow for the formation of a hot, evanescent medium of deconfined quarks and gluons termed the quark-gluon plasma (QGP).
