    Title: Jets and Jet-like Correlations at RHIC
    Author: Caines, Helen
    Subject: Nuclear Experiment ; High Energy Physics - Experiment
    Description: I present an overview of some of the recent results on jets and jet-like correlation measurements from the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Jets are produced in the initial hard scatterings of an event and can therefore be exploited as probes of the hot and dense medium produced in heavy-ion collisions. Previous RHIC results indicate that this medium, the Quark Gluon Plasma (sQGP), is strongly coupled, with partonic degrees of freedom. High pT colored partons passing through the sQGP are therefore believed to suffer energy loss via induced gluon radiation and elastic collisions, before exiting the medium and fragmenting in vacuum. Jet reconstruction and high pT correlation studies allow us to investigate how the partons interact with the medium and how the medium responds to the partons moving through it. By comparing measurements from pp and d-Au to those in Au-Au collisions at sqrt{s_{NN}} = 200 GeV we aim to disentangle cold nuclear matter effects from those of the hot and dense sQGP.

    Description: Recent results at RHIC seem to confirm T.D.Lee's hypothesis that a new form of matter, the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), could be formed in heavy-ion collisions at high energies. Heavy quarks, being formed in the early stages of heavy-ion collisions, form a good probe for the properties of the QGP. The energy loss of heavy quarks as they traverse the medium is predicted to be less than that of the lighter quarks. However; previous measurements of the nuclear modification factor at RIHC indicate that the energy loss of heavy and light quarks is comparable. Thus measurements of the in-medium energy loss of heavy-quarks are of particular interest. In this thesis, a measurement of the differential production cross-section of electrons from the semi-leptonic decay of heavy-flavor quarks in [special characters omitted] = 2.76 TeV pp is presented. This provides a stringent test of perturbative QCD in a new energy regime, and forms a crucial baseline for Pb-Pb collisions where the in-medium energy...

    Title: STAR results from the first year at RHIC
    Author: Caines, Helen
    Subject: Physics ; Physics, General ; Astronomy ; Astrophysics ; Physics;
    Description: An overview of the latest results from the STAR experiment at RHIC is presented. Preliminary measurements of π, K,p ,Λ and Ξ, plus their respective anti-particles at p t < 2 GeV/c, where the majority of particle production occurs, allow us to probe the soft processes whilst the harder perturbative regime can be accessed by studying particle spectra and yields at higher momenta.
