Particle Physics Experiments at High Energy Colliders / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
Written by one of the detector developers for the International Linear Collider, this is the first textbook for graduate students dedicated to the complexities and the simplicities of high energy collider detectors. It is intended as a specialized reference for a standard course in particle physics, and as a principal text for a special topics course focused on large collider experiments. Equally useful as a general guide for physicists designing big detectors.

About the Author
John Hauptman obtained his Ph.D. in experimental high energy physics with George Trilling at UC Berkeley in 1974 studying the interactions of hyperons in the 82-inch hydrogen bubble chamber. His work includes experiments in the 25-inch and 40-inch bubble chambers at LBL and SLAC, work on the electron ring accelerator at LBL, pion and kaon form factor experiments at Fermilab, the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) at Berkeley/SLAC, the D0 experiment at Fermilab, the CMS experiment at CERN, the DREAM calorimeter tests at CERN, and numerous smaller physics and instrumentation studies. Presently he leads the 4th Concept detector group for a future electron linear collider or muon collider.
