    Challenges and Goals for Accelerators in the XXI Centuryedited by Oliver Brning & Stephen Myers (CERN)

    The past 100 years of accelerator-based research have led the field from first insights into the structure of atoms to the development and confirmation of the Standard Model of physics. Accelerators have been a key tool in developing our understanding of the elementary particles and the forces that govern their interactions. This book describes the past 100 years of accelerator development with a special focus on the technological advancements in the field, the connection of the various accelerator projects to key developments and discoveries in the Standard Model, how accelerator technologies open the door to other applications in medicine and industry, and finally presents an outlook of future accelerator projects for the coming decades.

    Readership: Undergraduate students and professionals in accelerator physics.

    Reviews of Accelerator Science and TechnologyVolume 7: Collidersedited by Alexander W Chao (SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, USA) & Weiren Chou (Fermilab)

    Over the past decades, colliders defined the energy frontier in particle physics. Different types of colliers protonproton, protonantiproton, electronpositron, electronproton, electron-ion and ion-ion colliders have played complementary roles in fully mapping out the constituents and forces in the Standard Model (SM). We are now at a point where all predicted SM constituents of matter and forces have been found, and all the latest ones were found at colliders. Colliders also play a critical role in advancing beam physics, accelerator research and technology development. It is timely that RAST Volume 7 is dedicated to Colliders.

    Readership: Physicists and engineers in accelerator science and industry.

    Advanced Series on Directions in High Energy Physics Vol.23

    60 Years of CERN Experiments and Discoveriesedited by Herwig Schopper (University of Hamburg, Germany & CERN) & Luigi Di Lella (University of Pisa, Italy & CERN)

    The book is a compilation of the most important experimental results achieved during the past 60 years at CERN - from the mid-1950s to the latest discovery of the Higgs particle. Covering the results from the early accelerators at CERN to those most recent at the LHC, the contents provide an excellent review of the achievements of this outstanding laboratory. Not only presented is the impressive scientific progress achieved during the past six decades, but also demonstrated is the special way in which successful international collaboration exists at CERN.

    Readership: Graduate students and researchers in elementary particle physics, and historians of science.

    Advanced Series on Directions in High Energy Physics

    The High Luminosity Large Hadron ColliderThe New Machine for Illuminating the Mysteries of Universeedited by Oliver Brning & Lucio Rossi (CERN)

    The book consists of a series of chapters touching on all issues of technology and design, and each chapter can be read independently. The first few chapters give a summary of the whole project, of the physics motivation and of the accelerator challenges. The subsequent chapters cover the novel technologies, the new configurations of LHC and of its injectors as well as the expected operational implications. Altogether, the book brings the reader to the heart of technologies for the leading edge accelerator and gives insights into next generation hadron colliders.

    Readership: Researchers and graduates in accelerator physics and engineering.
