2016 Nuclear and Particle Physics Proceedings  
An overview of the most recent results on jet quenching physics obtained using PbPb and pPb collision data collected with the CMS experiment at √ s NN =2.76 TeV and √ s NN =5.02 TeV, respectively, will be presented. These measurements make use of many different observables, including momentum imbalance, nuclear modification factor R AA and R pA , as well as flavor dependence of jet quenching, jet shapes and jet fragmentation functions. All these measurements in PbPb and pPb collisions will be
