Abstract

I will discuss some ambiguities involved in using the AdS/CFT correspondence
to calculate the ultra-relativistic jet quenching parameter for quarks moving in
an N=4 super Yang-Mills thermal bath. Along the way, I will investigate the behavior of various string configurations on a five-dimensional AdS black hole
background.
