Di-jet asymmetry and wave turbulence

Abstract : We describe a new physical picture for the fragmentation of an energetic jet propagating through a dense QCD medium, which emerges from perturbative QCD and has the potential to explain the di-jet asymmetry observed in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC. The central ingredient in this picture is the phenomenon of wave turbulence, which provides a very efficient mechanism for the transport of energy towards the medium, via many soft particles which propagate at large angles with respect to the jet axis.
