Abstract

In Au-Au collision at √(s_NN )=200 GeV, a transition to Quark-Gluon Plasma can happened. High-momentum parton lose energy when travel through the hot dense matter, fragment into jets. If we can study the correlation between trigger particle π^0 and charged hadrons in the jets, it is helpful to understand the energy loss mechanism and hence some properties of Quark-Gluon Plasma. My work is to select the qualified and robust trigger particles and charged hadrons for correlation function
