We provide the important results from the proton–proton, proton–nucleus,nucleus–nucleus collision from the RHIC and LHC colliders, emphasizing jet-quenching in central collisions. We analyzed the behavior of nuclear modifi-cation factor and azimuthal anisotropies in dihadron correlations in variouscollisions at different beam energies. We analyzed the Inclusive transversemomentum spectra of charged particles in multiple detectors. The data fromfour of the RHIC detectors (STAR, PHENIX, PHOBOS, BRAHMS) andtwo of the LHC detectors (ALICE, CMS) are presented and compared forthe analysis. Initial conditions and final state effects of the high-energyheavy-ion collisions have been described. Both the RHIC and LHC data areconsistent with theoretical perturbative calculations incorporating the par-tonic energy loss in color-dense QCD matter, and this suggests formation ofa deconfined QGP phase in these high energy collisions.
