The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Evans and Bryant, J Instrum 3:S08001, 2008, [1] at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN (See footnote 1)) near Geneva, Switzerland, is a hadron accelerator, designed to provide unprecedented centre-of-mass-energies and luminosities for the discovery of new physics. Furthermore, it allows for measurements of parameters of the Standard Model in hitherto inaccessible regions of phase space.
