The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is one of the greatest scientific endeavours to date. The construction of the collider itself and the experiments that collect data from it represent a huge investment, both financially and in terms of human effort, in our hope to understand the way the Universe works at a deeper level. Yet the volumes of data produced are so large that they cannot be analysed at any single computing centre. Instead, the experiments have all adopted distributed computing models…

TLDR
The construction of the Large Hadron Collider has been a massive endeavour spanning almost 30 years from conception to commissioning, and the development of a two-in-one magnet, where the two rings are integrated into a single magnetic structure was essential for the LHC.
GridPP: development of the UK computing Grid for particle physics
The GridPP Collaboration is building a UK computing Grid for particle physics, as part of the international effort towards computing for the Large Hadron Collider. The project, funded by the UK
The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is described. The detector operates at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It was conceived to study proton-proton (and lead-lead) collisions at a
DIRAC: A Community Grid Solution
TLDR
An overview of the DIRAC system architecture and design choices is given to show how different components are put together to compose an integrated data processing system including all the aspects of the LHCb experiment - from the MC production and raw data reconstruction to the final user analysis.
The LHCb Collaboration
We measure the B0 − B0 mixing frequency ∆md using ∼ 6000 B0 → D−(K+π−π−)π+ candidates from 36 pb−1 of data taken in physics runs of the LHCb experiment in 2010. We use opposite and same side tagging
The LHCb detector at the LHC
The LHCb experiment is dedicated to precision measurements of CP violation and rare decays of B hadrons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (Geneva). The initial configuration and expected

Observation of long-range, near-side angular correlations in proton-proton collisions at the LHC
Results on two-particle angular correlations for charged particles emitted in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 0.9, 2.36, and 7 TeV are presented, using data collected with the
