Title: Gluon shadowing and jet quenching in A + A collisions at radical s =200 A GeV

Abstract

The sensitivity of moderate {ital p}{sub {ital T}}{approx lt}8 GeV/{ital c} singles inclusive spectra in nuclear collisions to gluon shadowing and jet quenching is estimated using the HIGING Monte Carlo model. We show how the systematic study of the nuclear dependence of those spectra in {ital p}+{ital A} can be used to determine the magnitude of gluon shadowing and how the enhanced suppression in {ital A}+{ital A} would provide information on the energy-loss mechanisms in dense partonic matter.
