Accelerator Physics and Technologies for Linear Colliders
by Frank Zimmermann - University of Chicago , 2002
These are lecture notes for accelerator physics and technologies for linear colliders at the University of Chicago. From the table of contents: Beam-Delivery Overview; Final Focus; Collisions and Luminosity; Spent Beam; etc.
The Meson Factories
by T.E.O. Ericson, V.W. Hughes, D.E. Nagle - University of California Press , 1991
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.
Theory of Electromagnetic Fields
by Andrzej Wolski - arXiv , 2011
We discuss electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We review Maxwell's equations and show that there are solutions representing the propagation of electromagnetic waves.
Physics Searches at the LHC
by David E. Morrissey, Tilman Plehn, Tim M.P. Tait - arXiv , 2010
With the LHC up, the focus of high energy physics will soon turn to an interpretation of LHC data in terms of the physics of electroweak symmetry breaking and the TeV scale. We present here models for new TeV-scale physics and their LHC signatures.
Searching for the Higgs Boson
by D. Rainwater - arXiv , 2007
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.
by D. Zeppenfeld - arXiv , 1999
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.
Introduction to Collider Physics
by Maxim Perelstein - arXiv , 2010
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.
Hard Interactions of Quarks and Gluons: a Primer for LHC Physics
by J.M. Campbell, J.W. Huston, W.J. Stirling - arXiv , 2006
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.
Lawrence and His Laboratory: A History of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory
by J. L. Heilbron, Robert W. Seidel - University of California Press , 1989
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.
Lawrence and the Cyclotron
by Peter Westwick - American Institute of Physics , 2009
As he built machines to study subatomic particles, Ernest Lawrence created modern Big Science. After helping make the first atomic bombs, he became a leader of Cold War science. His biography is illustrated with pictures, explanations and a song.
Charged Particle Beams
by Stanley Humphries - Wiley-Interscience , 1990
This textbook on charged particle beams gives a broad review of collective beam physics. Topics include emittance, space- charge effects, design of electron and ion guns, generation of RF and microwave energy by beams and free-electron lasers.
Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration
by Stanley Humphries - Wiley-Interscience , 1999
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the physics and technology of charged- particle accelerators. Topics include electrostatic accelerators, betatrons, linear induction accelerators, RF linacs, cyclotrons and synchrotrons.
