    We study the time evolution of a high-momentum gluon or quark propagating through an infinite, thermalized, partonic medium utilizing a Boltzmann equation approach. We calculate the collisional energy loss of the parton, study its temperature and flavor dependence as well as the momentum broadening incurred through multiple interactions. Our transport calculations agree well with analytic calculations of collisional energy loss where available, but offer the unique opportunity to address the medium response as well in a consistent fashion. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
