Physics at LEP

  • Herwig Schopper
Conference paper

Abstract

At the time this lecture was given the construction of LEP was approaching its end and first collisions were expected in Summer 1989. The four LEP experiments were very busy installing the final components and getting ready to take the first data. This exciting situation will be reflected in this report by concentrating on the physics that will be done in the near future. Therefore emphasis will be given to experiments that can be done with LEP 100 and in particular to the results which could be expected in 1989/90 [1]. In the meantime a first beam was injected into LEP as foreseen on 14 July 1989, a pilot run took place from 13 to 18 August 1989 with all four experiments taking data and within a few hours more than 50 Z0-events were accumulated as will be described later. The first physics run is foreseen to start in September 1989.
