Particle collisions at the LHC

Hello everyone,

Quick question: Which particles are colliding at the LHC and why?

All I know is that proton-proton collisions are explored as well as heavier nuclei such as gold (Au) and lead (Pb) to research the quark-gluon plasma state.

Proton-Proton beam, sometimes heavy ion beam, in search for new physics... for example , to explain how particleaquired their mass, how can we unite all forces... how the universe was made and come to current stage..........so many things

Proton Bunches (Who's constituents are 2 up quarks and 1 down quark) and Lead Ions.

The biggest cross section in the LHC is for gluon-gluon fusion
