Nuclear–nuclear collisions at energies attainable at the large accelerators RHIC and the LHC are an ideal environment to study nuclear matter under extreme conditions of high temperature and energy density. One of the most important probes of such nuclear matter is the study of production of jets. In this article, several jet shape observables in Au+Au collisions at the center of mass energy per nucleon–nucleon pair of
= 200 GeV simulated in the Monte Carlo generator JEWEL are presented. Jets were reconstructed using the anti-
algorithm and their shapes were studied as a function of the jet-resolution parameter R
, transverse momentum
and collision centrality.
