Studying evolution with jets at STAR

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


For over a decade the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory has facilitated the development of a rich and diverse proton structure program by consistently providing highly polarized proton collisions over a wide range of center-of-mass energies. The STAR collaboration has capitalized on the versatility of the RHIC beams and its own wide acceptance detector to build a multi-faceted jet program. This contribution will discuss STAR's recent mid-rapidity jet measurements and their sensitivity to the gluon momentum, gluon helicity and quark transversity distributions.
