"Physics and the CMS Detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider"
ABSTRACT:
In 2007 a new proton-proton collider, the LHC, will turn on and a whole new energy domain will become accessible to experiment. Indications of what we might observe come from current measurements in experiments in high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology. We will discuss what problems in physics might be resolved with data from the LHC, describe how the detectors work and what are the special challenges associated with building a detector of the scale required for this energy region.
