I am always confused by the terminology: In high energy particle scattering, and in particular, in the context of collider physics, what is the relationship between luminosity, intensity and flux? ...
I want to make a comparison of parton luminosities between Tevatron and LHC. According to Factorization theorem the cross section in hadron colliders, as long as the partonic cross section has $\hat ...
Both beam energy and luminosity are important for succesful particle accelerator experiments. The LHC's nominal design is for 7 TeV beams and 1E34 cm^-2 sec^-1 luminosity, while the SSC's nominal ...
