Motivation
Motivation

  • Past tomographic models simplified the calculation by neglecting either:

    • Multigluon fluctuations

    • Path length fluctuations

  • For fixed-length calculations, reasonable but unjustifiable length L~5 fm used

Significance of nuclear profile
Significance of Nuclear Profile

  • Simpler densities create a surface bias

Woods-Saxon

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop

Toy model for purely geometric radiative loss from Drees, Feng, Jia, Phys. Rev. C.71:034909


Edgy geometry
Edgy Geometry

  • We use the Woods-Saxon nuclear geometry, which has a fuzzy “edge”

  • There is no unique, natural LWS definition

    • Two examples (of many possibilities):

  • We will use the latter formula

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop


Partonic r aa model
Partonic RAA Model

  • where Pincoherently convolves DGLV energy loss (including multigluon fluctuations) with the infinite-time elastic energy loss for fixedas

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop

Momentum Jacobian as survival probability; see, e.g., Gyulassy, nucl-th/0403032


Volume emission of partons
Volume Emission of Partons

  • fixed pT = 15 GeV, yT = f = 0, and as = .3

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop


Average lengths of emission
Average Lengths of Emission

  • Dynamic volume depends on partonic species and pT

    • For pT = 5, 10, 15, 20 GeV, as = .3

    • <Lg> = 1.74, 1.93, 2.16, 2.41 fm

    • <Lu> = 3.83, 4.21, 4.47, 4.62 fm

    • <Lc> = 4.65, 4.43, 4.48, 4.50 fm

    • <Lb> = 6.17, 5.69, 5.43, 5.29 fm

Conclusions
Conclusions

  • There are several large effects that must be taken into account in any energy loss model:

    • Multigluon fluctuations

    • Path length fluctuations

    • Collisional energy loss

    • Running as

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop


Future work
Future Work

  • Find more accurate analytic formulae for collisional loss

    • Molnár’s parton cascade provides exact numerical answer

  • Simultaneously treat elastic and inelastic energy loss

    • Find a more natural L?

Heavy Flavor Productions Workshop


Future work cont d
Future Work (cont’d)

  • Allow as to run

    • Nonzero lower bound to theoretical error

  • Use even more accurate medium density

    • Hirano’s CGC-initial condition 3+1 D evolving hydro background

Partonic r aa model1
Partonic RAA Model

  • Exploit the power law production rate to use the momentum Jacobian to define the probability of escape, (1-e)n

    • pT, final = e pT, initial

    • n is simply related to the exponent of the power law

    • Assumes a slowly changing power law

Combining models
Combining Models

  • Find a fixed L that reproduces the dynamical length-generated partonic RAA using proper initial spectra followed by fragmentation into pions and electrons

Vary as

  • We expect a big change since

  • DErad ~ as3

  • DEelas ~ as2
