Third Linear Collider Physics School 2009

LCPS2009
August 17-23 2009
Ambleside, UK
The school is aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers working on the International Linear Collider. The Large Hadron Collider is expected to do a first survey of TeV energy scale but a Linear Collider is best placed to make detailed measurements of any new particles plus the top quark and the Z. These Linear Collider Physics School proceedings cover Particle Theory, Accelerator Theory, Experimental Aspects, Cosmology and Topical Issues. In the theory sessions there are introductions to the Standard Model (SM) of electroweak interactions and QCD, top quark physics, exotic particles, supersymmetry (SUSY) and particularly the Higgs mechanism and Higgs bosons in the SM and the Minimal Supersymmetric SM (MSSM). The accelerator sessions introduce basic concepts such as synchrotrons, transverse focusing, phase stability and beam emittance, and then discuss linacs and the designs of the International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). Higgs searches at today’s hadron colliders and the outlook for linear colliders are dealt with in Experimental Aspects, along with a survey of detector technologies for the ILC and CLIC.
