CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 2 (2019): A Facility for Tumour Therapy and Biomedical Research in South-Eastern Europe

In 2016 the South East European International Institute for Sustainable Technologies (SEEIIST) was proposed by Herwig Schopper and brought to the political level by Sanja Damjanovic, Minister of Science of Montenegro. In this framework two design studies have been completed by two groups of European experts: a "4th Generation Synchrotron Light Source for Science and Technology" (SRL) and a "Facility for Tumour Hadron Therapy and Biomedical Research" (HTR). A preliminary report was presented and discussed...

CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 1 (2019): Detector Technologies for CLIC

The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a high-energy high-luminosity linear electron–positron collider under development. It is foreseen to be built and operated in three stages, at centre-of-mass energies of 380 GeV, 1.5 TeV and 3 TeV, respectively. It offers a rich physics program including direct searches as well as the probing of new physics through a broad set of precision measurements of Standard Model processes, particularly in the Higgs-boson and top-quark sectors. The precision required...

Higgs physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC

Editors: M. Cepeda, S. Gori, P Ilten, M. Kado & F. Riva
The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments, was a success achieved with only a percent of the entire dataset foreseen for the LHC. It opened a landscape of possibilities in the study of Higgs boson properties, Electroweak Symmetry breaking and the Standard Model in general, as well as new avenues in probing new physics beyond the Standard Model. Six years after the discovery, with a conspicuously larger dataset...

Beyond the Standard Model physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC

Editors: X. Cid Vidal, M. D’Onofrio, P. J. Fox, R. Torre & K. A. Ulmer
This is the third out of five chapters of the final report [1] of the Workshop on Physics at HL-LHC, and perspectives on HE-LHC [2]. It is devoted to the study of the potential, in the search for Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics, of the High Luminosity (HL) phase of the LHC, defined as $3$ ab$^{-1}$ of data taken at a centre-of-mass energy of 14 TeV, and of a possible future upgrade, the High...

CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 3 (2018): The CLIC potential for new physics

Corresponding editors: J. de Blas, R. Franceschini, F. Riva, P. Roloff, U. Schnoor, M. Spannowsky, J. D. Wells, A. Wulzer and J. Zupan Abstract: The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a mature option for the future of high energy physics. It combines the benefits of the clean environment of e+e− colliders with operation at high centre-of-mass energies, allowing to probe scales beyond the reach of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for many scenarios of new...

CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 4 (2019): Study on the career trajectories of people with a working experience at CERN

This document describes the results of a study, aiming to measure the impact of CERN and of its environment on the career of people who worked at the laboratory. The data was collected using two on-line question- naires, launched in 2016 and 2017, targeting experimentalists and theorists, respectively. The mandate, the methodology followed, the questionnaires and the analysis of the data collected are presented.

The preface presents the motivation for making the report, the mandate of the five working groups and the corresponding conveners.

Future physics opportunities for high-density QCD at the LHC with heavy-ion and proton beams

Editors: Z. Citron, A. Dainese, J. F. Grosse-Oetringhaus, J. M. Jowett, Y.-J. Lee & U. A. Wiedemann
The future opportunities for high-density QCD studies with ion and proton beams at the LHC are presented. Four major scientific goals are identified: the characterisation of the macroscopic long wavelength Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) properties with unprecedented precision, the investigation of the microscopic parton dynamics underlying QGP properties, the development of a unified picture of particle production and QCD dynamics from small (pp) to large (nucleus--nucleus) systems, the exploration of parton densities in nuclei in a...

CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 4 (2018): The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) – Project Implementation Plan

Edited by: M. Aicheler, P.N. Burrows, N. Catalan, R. Corsini, M. Draper, J. Osborne,D. Schulte, S. Stapnes and M.J. Stuart Abstract: The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a TeV-scale high-luminosity linear e + e − collider under development by international collaborations hosted by CERN. This document provides an overview of the design, technology, and implementation aspects of the CLIC accelerator. For an optimal exploitation of its physics potential, CLIC is foreseen to be built and...

Standard Model physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC

Editors: P. Azzi, S. Farry, P. Nason & A. Tricoli
The successful operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the excellent performance of the ATLAS, CMS, LHCb and ALICE detectors in Run-1 and Run-2 with $pp$ collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV as well as the giant leap in precision calculations and modeling of fundamental interactions at hadron colliders have allowed an extraordinary breadth of physics studies including precision measurements of a variety physics processes. The LHC results have so...

Opportunities in flavour physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC

Ediotors: A. Cerri, V. V. Gligorov, S. Malvezzi, J. Martin Camalich & J. Zupan
Motivated by the success of the flavour physics programme carried out over the last decade at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), we characterize in detail the physics potential of its High-Luminosity and High-Energy upgrades in this domain of physics. We document the extraordinary breadth of the HL/HE-LHC programme enabled by a putative Upgrade II of the dedicated flavour physics experiment LHCb and the evolution of the established flavour physics role of the ATLAS and CMS...

CERN Yellow Reports: Monographs, Vol 5 (2019): History of the European Muon Collaboration (EMC)

The European Muon Collaboration (EMC), formed in the years 1972–1974, was one of the first large experimental particle physics collaborations with more than 100 physicists. Its aim was to study the quark structure of the nucleon through deep inelastic muon scattering. Two seminal discoveries were made; the EMC effect and the spin crisis. In this paper the history of the collaboration from beginning to end is described. The appendices describe some of the difficulties met...

Addendum to the report on the Physics at the HL-LHC, and perspectives for the HE-LHC.
