Abstract

Workshop synopsis:
This workshop will introduce participants to the basic concepts of high-energy physics as performed at particle colliders in general and at the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in particular. Participants will look at some of the basic principles of particle physics, accelerator physics, and detector physics, and start to understand some of the meaning behind the hoopla that sometimes surrounds the field. This also serves as a preview of work that will be going on in the IMSA-CMS research group in cooperation with Fermilab. A good opportunity for anyone interested in particle physics research!
