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.

This is an introduction to some of the basic ideas and tools required for theoretical analysis of collider data. Several examples of Standard Model processes at electron-positron and hadron colliders are considered to illustrate these ideas.

We discuss electromagnetic fields, with an emphasis on aspects relevant to radiofrequency systems in particle accelerators. We review Maxwell's equations and show that there are solutions representing the propagation of electromagnetic waves.

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.

The text presents the major accelerator physics issues of the Very Large Hadron Collider as examined by the Design Study collaboration and provides a basis for discussion and further studies of VLHC accelerator parameters and design philosophies.
