Muon colliders provide a unique route to deliver high energy collisions that enable discovery searches and precision measurements to extend our under-standing of the fundamental laws of physics. The muon collider design aims to deliver physics reach at the highest energies with costs, power consumption and on a time scale that may prove favorable relative to other proposed facilities. In this context, a new international collaboration has formed to further extend the design concepts and…
