LPM-Effect in Monte Carlo Models of Radiative Energy Loss

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Extending the use of Monte Carlo (MC) event generators to jets in nuclear collisions requires a probabilistic implementation of the non-abelian LPM effect. We demonstrate that a local, probabilistic MC implementation based on the concept of formation times can account fully for the LPM-effect. The main features of the analytically known eikonal and collinear approximation can be reproduced, but we show how going beyond this approximation can lead to qualitatively different results.
