Re: Music

Sounds like a great idea, but why don't you post it on youtube? I have some problems playing it on linux (shame on me...)

Re: unpronouncable volcano

There are very good reasons for the planes not to fly... The real problem is they didn't perform real mesurements of the ash amount in the atmosphere across europe: they do only rely on a computer simulation... And so good the models could be, the real situation isn't necesseraly as predicted. They ...

Re: 7E10 single injections

I read they wanted to put +- 2800 bunches of 10e11 into the machine... But that was before the accident; how many bunches should we expect for this run??

Re: What do the displays mean ?

it's the value, in meters, of the beta* parameter. I think there's a good explanation about this in the forum, I don't remember where... It has something to do with the diameter and stability of the beam.

hi!

Hello, I'm a math & physics student from Belgium and I'm very fond of high energy physics (at my level of difficulty, i.e. almost zero of course... but not for long!). It's very exciting to be able to follow the LHC operations live; I can't wait to see the first results (like everybody else I guess....

Re: What do the displays mean ?

Anybody some idea about what the displays in CMSTV mean??

I particularly wonder why the number of stored events regularly goes back to zero...
