Lawrence and His Laboratory: A History of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory
by J. L. Heilbron, Robert W. Seidel
Publisher: University of California Press 1989
Number of pages: 586
The Radiation Laboratory in Berkeley, California, was the birthplace of particle accelerators, radioisotopes, and modern big science. This first volume of its history is a saga of physics and finance in the Great Depression, when a new kind of science was born.

With the LHC up, the focus of high energy physics will soon turn to an interpretation of LHC data in terms of the physics of electroweak symmetry breaking and the TeV scale. We present here models for new TeV-scale physics and their LHC signatures.

This textbook on charged particle beams gives a broad review of collective beam physics. Topics include emittance, space- charge effects, design of electron and ion guns, generation of RF and microwave energy by beams and free-electron lasers.

The authors develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard scattering processes. The text provides both a rigorous development of the formalism of hard scattering of quarks and gluons and an intuitive understanding of the physics.

These are lectures on Higgs boson collider searches. The author first reviews the Standard Model searches, then covers in-depth what comes after a candidate discovery at LHC, and finally discusses the MSSM extension to the Higgs sector.
