Looking For (Academic) References About How the LHC Works

  • #1
I'm currently writing a paper for a small class called "Contemporary Physics" and I am writing about particle accelerators and the search for the Higgs Boson. I have a fairly good idea about how the Large Hadron Collider works, but I cannot use my own explanation alone as I need references to cite. Can anyone suggest to me some good (preferably academic) references on how the LHC works?

Hello CLI, welcome to PF :smile: !

CERN itself is unsurpassed in explanatory info.

There's a few other promising results when you Google "cern lhc how it works".

LHC design report:
part 1
part 2
part 3
They are also available as books, but page numbers can differ so be careful what you cite.
