Particle accelerators are among the most complex instruments conceived by physicists for the exploration of the fundamental laws of nature. Of relevance for particle physics are the high-energy colliders, such as the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which hosts particle physics experiments that are probing the Standard Model predictions and looking for signs of physics beyond the standard model. 



Machine learning for beam dynamics studies at the CERN Large Hadron Collider

CERN Large Hadron Collider optics model, measurements, and corrections

Optics stability during all phases of operation is crucial for the LHC. Tools and procedures have been developed for rapid checks of beta beating, dispersion, and linear coupling, as well as for

Simulations and measurements of beam loss patterns at the CERN Large Hadron Collider

The CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is designed to collide proton beams of unprecedented energy, in order to extend the frontiers of high-energy particle physics. During the first very successful

The CERN Large Hadron Collider operated during Run 2 (2015-2018) at a beam energy of 6.5 TeV. This period saw an important increase in performance through improvements in the LHC and an increased


The cleaning efficiency requirements in the LHC are beyond the requirements at other circular colliders. The achievable ideal cleaning efficiency in the LHC is presented for the improved LHC

Machine Learning Applied to the Analysis of Nonlinear Beam Dynamics Simulations for the CERN Large Hadron Collider and Its Luminosity Upgrade

The research presented here aims to devise efficient algorithms to identify outliers and to improve the quality of the fitted models expressing the time evolution of the dynamic aperture.

First β-beating measurement and optics analysis for the CERN Large Hadron Collider

Proton beams were successfully steered through the entire ring of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on September the 10th of 2008. A reasonable lifetime was achieved for the counterclockwise beam,

Machine Learning Methods for Optics Measurements and Corrections at LHC

The results presented in this paper clearly show the suitability of machine learning methods for the optics control at LHC and the potential for further investigation on appropriate approaches.

Optics Corrections Using Machine Learning in the LHC

Optics corrections in the LHC are based on a response matrix between available correctors and observables. Supervised learning has been applied to optics correction in the LHC demonstrating promising

FCC-hh: The Hadron Collider

In response to the 2013 Update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics (EPPSU), the Future Circular Collider (FCC) study was launched as a world-wide international collaboration hosted by CERN.
