Homework Help: Looking For (Academic) References About How the LHC Works

  1. May 4, 2015 #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.
