LEP Summer Study
G E N E V A CERN -Service d 1 I n f o m t i o n scientifique -W 3 8 2 -2800 -f6vrier 1979 1700novembre 1980 These Proceedings are dedicated t o the memory of Bruno Touschek, whose m e i s so closely associated w i t h the early developments of e l e c t r o n storage rings ABSTRACT Options for the future major high-energy accelerator in Europe have converged on LEP, a large electron-positron storage-ring facility. + - The purpose of the LEP Summer Study was to discuss e e physics beyond PETRA
... sics beyond PETRA energy (2 x 19 GeV) and to assess the LEP design which had just evolved from work conducted at CERN. Apart from the overall summary report, a set of specialized reports deal with present theoretical expectations, anticipated rates and experimental conditions, and with the design of the machine and its interaction areas. Volume 1 contains summary reports presented at CERN as conclusions to the Summer Study. Volume 2 contains transcripts of review talks presented at Les Houches, sometimes combined into reports providing a global view of specific topics. Some additional specialized notes are also included. Material on machine design is incomplete, to avoid duplication with the design report CERNIISR-~EP178-17. vii -O r g a n i z i n g Committee of t h e LEP Summer S t u d y S .
