    • Hadron production from quark coalescence and jet fragmentation 

      Greco, V.; Ko, Che Ming; Vitev, I. (American Physical Society, 2005)
      Transverse momentum spectra of pions, protons, and antiprotons in Au+Au collisions at intermediate RHIC energy root s(NN)=62 GeV are studied in a model that includes both quark coalescence from the dense partonic matter ...
    • Heavy quark production from jet conversions in a quark-gluon plasma 

      Liu, W.; Fries, Rainer J. (American Physical Society, 2008)
      Recently, it has been demonstrated that the chemical composition of jets in heavy ion collisions is significantly altered compared to the jets in the vacuum. This signal can be used to probe the medium formed in nuclear ...
    • Jet conversions in a quark-gluon plasma 

      Liu, W.; Ko, Che Ming; Zhang, B. W. (American Physical Society, 2007)
      Quark and gluon jets traversing through a quark-gluon plasma not only lose their energies but also can undergo flavor conversions. The conversion rates via the elastic q((q) over bar )g -> gq((q) over bar )and the inelastic ...
    • Probing nuclear matter with jet conversions 

      Liu, W.; Fries, Rainer J. (American Physical Society, 2008)
      We discuss the flavor of leading jet partons as a valuable probe of nuclear matter. We point out that the coupling of jets to nuclear matter naturally leads to an alteration of jet chemistry even at high transverse momentum ...
