Présentation en anglais


The discovery of the higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider has been a triumph of human ingenuity and of massive international collaboration. Many thousands of scientists, engineers and technicians were behind the construction of the machine, detectors and computing infrastructure needed to analyze the huge amount of data produced by it.

In this book a few key members of this team have agreed to write about the science and engineering of this immense project as they lived it. The final chapter describes the efforts of the ATLAS and CMS to uncover the holy grail of particle physics, a literal « needle in the haystack » in the data the LHC has produced, provoking the front page of The Economist to declare « A giant leap for science. »
