Wolfgang Lerche reviews in 1999
Software is playing an increasingly important role in the tricky business of setting up the beams from particle accelerators. A recent workshop at CERN looked at what has been accomplished so far and ...
With Brookhaven's RHIC relativistic heavy-ion collider scheduled to be commissioned this year, preparations for its experimental programme gather momentum.
CERN's demanding data processing requirements provide the testbed for a new range of semiconductor chips and associated software developed jointly by industrial giants Hewlett-Packard and Intel and wh...
Monte-Carlo methods are vital simulation tools for studying high-energy particle collisions. To push the development of the Monte-Carlo generators, their underlying models and technical solutions, D...
CERN's Information and Programming Technology group has exploited the World Wide Web to make it easier to keep track of masses of computer code.
The 1989 Computing In High Energy Physics conference weighed up the challenges of analysing LEP and other data.
High energy physics still has a lot to gain from microprocessor applications, wrote the Courier in 1979.
In March 1972 – the year Intel’s 8008 processor was launched and the compact disc invented – CERN’s Lew Kowarski explained why computers were here to stay.
Computing resources may one day dictate the amount of experimental physics research done at CERN, predicted this June 1964 feature.
