I'm looking for a references / short book which discusses what is going on LHC collider - specific experiments, collision processes, analysis of data, how exactly the facility is operating (not professional level but for a high-energy Phd level). I would love to hear your recommendations.

  • $\begingroup$ I should mention that I perfer "one compendium" rather than catching papers. But thanks anyway. $\endgroup$ – Yair Jan 6 '14 at 20:54

    $\begingroup$ Basic rule: no one has written a nice book about things that are still happening and evolving. $\endgroup$ – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Jan 6 '14 at 21:40
