Physics at the Terascale
It is clearly divided into three sections; The first covers the physics -- discussing the various aspects of the Standard Model as well as its extensions, explaining important experimental results and highlighting the expectations from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The second is dedicated to the involved technologies and detector concepts, and the third covers the important - but often neglected - topics of the organisation and financing of high-energy physics research.
A useful resource for students and researchers from high-energy physics.

Thomas Schörner-Sadenius studied physics in Hamburg an Munich and worked on experiments at CERN (Crystal Barrel, OPAL, ATLAS, CMS) and at DESY (H1, ZEUS). His main expertise is in data analysis in the field of QCD studies, in triggering in high-energy physics experiments and in the running and maintenance of large detector systems. Currently Thomas Schörner-Sadenius is the leader of Analysis Centre of the Helmholtz Alliance "Physics at the Terascale" and responsible for the shaping of the analysis-related programme of the Alliance.
