CHRISTMAS AND FUTURE PLANS:

Just received from the LHC accelerator physicists:
"The results from the recent tracking campaign have been presented in our meeting last Friday. The presentation was well received and it was decided to continue with another massive study after Christmas, using a slightly different set of parameters. The foreseen study will need about the same computing resources as the one just completed. Maybe more, probably not less. The results of the previous study will be presented at the forthcoming Particle Accelerator Conference 2006 in Edinburgh."

Happy Christmas and thanks from CERN to all LHC@home volunteers!

The new study is an extension of previous simulations. We want to evaluate the long term beam stability in the LHC in the presence of unknown or partially corrected magnetic imperfections, i.e. small field errors in the magnet elements. This scenario must be expected especially in the first few years of the LHC and in particular during its startup in 2007. An essential part of this study is therefore the definition and test of a dedicated configuration for the LHC commissioning. The necessary resources for such a study are available only within the LHC@home project.
