This comprehensive introduction to high transverse momentum reactions at hadron colliders begins with the Standard Model of high energy physics and a description of the specialized detectors used. It then analyzes the reactions and summarizes the state of the art in hadron collider physics defined by Tevatron results. The experimental program at the detectors being built for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is also described, with details of the general strategy to find the postulated Higgs particle.


Introduction; 1. The Standard Model and electroweak symmetry breaking; 2. Detector basics; 3. Collider physics; 4. Tevatron physics; 5. Higgs search strategy; 6. SUSY and open questions in HEP; Appendix A. The Standard Model; Appendix B. A worked example in COMPHEP; Appendix C. Kinematics; Appendix D. Running couplings; Index.


DAN GREEN received his Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1969. He held a post-doctoral position at Stony Brook from 1969 to 1972 and worked for a time at the Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) at CERN. His next appointment was as an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University from 1972 to 1978 during which time he was also Spokesperson of a BNL Baryonium Experiment. He has been a Staff Scientist at Fermilab from 1979 to the present, and has worked in a wide variety of roles on experiments both at Fermilab and elsewhere. He participated in the D0 Experiment as Muon Group Leader from 1982 to 1990 and as B Physics Group Co-Convener from 1990 to 1994. He led the US compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration as Spokesperson and then Project Manager for the US groups working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. At Fermilab, he was Physics Department Deputy Head from 1984 to 1986 and Head from 1986 to 1990. From 1993 to the present he has served as the CMS Department Head in the Particle Physics Division.
