Title: Supersonic Jets in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions

Abstract

Mach-cone shock waves were proposed to explain the broad and perhaps double-peaked away-side 2-particle jet-correlations at RHIC; however, other mechanisms cannot be ruled out. Three-particle jet-correlation is needed in order to distinguish various physics mechanisms. In this talk the 3-particle jet-correlation measurements are presented and their implications are discussed.
