**Collider Physics**

by D. Zeppenfeld

**Publisher**: arXiv 1999**Number of pages**: 48

**Description**:

These lectures are intended as a pedagogical introduction to physics at e+e- and hadron colliders. A selection of processes is used to illustrate the strengths and capabilities of the different machines. The discussion includes W pair production and chargino searches at e+e- colliders, Drell-Yan events and the top quark search at the Tevatron, and Higgs searches at the LHC.

**arXiv**

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.
