In this paper, our task is to review the evolution of Gluon Jets in view of the quest for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) – the so called New Physics (NP). One of the major goals of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is to understand a new mode of matter called the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). This seemingly new form of matter consists of a confinement of quarks and gluons observed at very high temperature and density. This paper focuses on heavy ion collisions in order to get an understanding of the interaction of high momentum partons. It is these highly sophisticated interactions that probe quantum chromodynamics theorem at very high temperatures and densities. This results in the QGP phase of NP via propagation of very energetic Gluon Jets.
