Description - High Pt Physics at Hadron Colliders by Dan Green
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to high transverse momentum reactions at hadron (proton-proton or proton-antiproton) colliders. It begins by introducing the Standard Model of high energy physics and describes the specialized detectors used. It then gives a general treatment of the reactions to be studied and summarizes the state of the art in hadron collider physics, defined by Tevatron results. The experimental program at the detectors being built for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is described, with details of the search program and the general strategy to find the postulated Higgs particle. Speculations of physics beyond the Standard Model are also discussed. This book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in high energy physics. It incorporates a shareware program that enables the reader to reproduce many of the examples and exercises given in the text, and go beyond the scope of text into open-ended study.

Author Biography - Dan Green
DAN GREEN received his Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1969. He held a post-doctoral position at Stony Brook from 1969 to 1972 and worked for a time at the Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) at CERN. His next appointment was as an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University from 1972 to 1978 during which time he was also Spokesperson of a BNL Baryonium Experiment. He has been a Staff Scientist at Fermilab from 1979 to the present, and has worked in a wide variety of roles on experiments both at Fermilab and elsewhere. He participated in the D0 Experiment as Muon Group Leader from 1982 to 1990 and as B Physics Group Co-Convener from 1990 to 1994. He led the US compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration as Spokesperson and then Project Manager for the US groups working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. At Fermilab, he was Physics Department Deputy Head from 1984 to 1986 and Head from 1986 to 1990. From 1993 to the present he has served as the CMS Department Head in the Particle Physics Division.
