Abstract

On the basis of perturbative quantum chromodynamics, we consider the bremsstrahlung energy losses of partons traversing parton matter using the well-known quantum electrodynamical formulas. We find the transport equation describing the energy distribution of partons as a function of thickness of a target. The equation is solved numerically and we briefly discuss the relevance of our results for hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at high energies.
