For the older Pythia 6.4 code the Q-PYTHIA routines have added modifications in the context of jet production in heavy-ion collisions. Medium effects are introduced through an additive term in the splitting functions, computed in the multiple-soft scattering approximation. The observable effects of this modification are studied for different quantities such as fragmentation functions and the hump-backed plateau, in terms of evolution variables: virtuality, transverse momentum and angle.

The purpose of this project is to write corresponding codes relevant for Pythia 8.1, and to gain experience with C++ programming in general and for Pythia 8 in particular. This was achieved.
