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.

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.

Introduction to physics at e+e- and hadron colliders. A selection of processes is used to illustrate the strengths and capabilities of the different machines. The discussion includes W pair production and chargino searches at various colliders.

This is an introduction to some of the basic ideas and tools required for theoretical analysis of collider data. Several examples of Standard Model processes at electron-positron and hadron colliders are considered to illustrate these ideas.
