Charged Particle Beams
by Stanley Humphries
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience 2002
Number of pages: 849
Addresses the topics vital to understanding high-power accelerators and high-brightness charged particle beams. Presents a unified description of charged particle beams that is detailed enough for use as a text and comprehensive enough to stand as a reference. This treatment of particle beam physics prepares students to read the literature and to use accelerators effectively. Describes the basic ideas behind modern beam applications such as stochastic cooling, high-brightness injectors and the free electron laser.

The Radiation Laboratory in Berkeley, California, was the birthplace of particle accelerators, radioisotopes, and modern big science. This volume is a saga of physics and finance in the Great Depression, when a new kind of science was born.

This volume is a collection of commented reprints concerning the physics program at meson factories, the characteristics of the accelerators, and the major instrumentation as well as the applications, the history and future of these facilities.

The authors develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard scattering processes. The text provides both a rigorous development of the formalism of hard scattering of quarks and gluons and an intuitive understanding of the physics.

These are lectures on Higgs boson collider searches. The author first reviews the Standard Model searches, then covers in-depth what comes after a candidate discovery at LHC, and finally discusses the MSSM extension to the Higgs sector.
