Abstract: The computation of radiative energy loss in a dynamically screened QCD mediumis a key ingredient for obtaining reliable predictions for jet quenching inultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. We calculate, to first order in theopacity, the energy loss suffered by a heavy quark traveling through aninfinite and time-independent QCD medium and show that the result for adynamical medium is almost twice that obtained previously for a mediumconsisting of randomly distributed static scattering centers. A quantitativedescription of jet suppression in RHIC and LHC experiments thus must correctlyaccount for the dynamics of the medium-s constituents.
