Another cool link for people waiting

Post by Tau » Sat Apr 03, 2010 9:48 pm

Hi,
I just found this cool link explaining how all the procedures (setup, commisioning, and so on) are developed:
It is a programming language, adapted from a language called pnuts (which looks like Java).
http://icalepcs2009.spring8.or.jp/abstr ... 3_TALK.PDF
I imagine that the operators write ever more sophisticated scripts, and that would explain why more and more often, procedures are treated by them as one step (like rampdown and precycle).
So each time something goes wrong, they figure out what is the cause, modify the script so that they cannot make the same error again.
Hope you like it.

If you want to make sure the LHC has not distroyed the world, someone has created a web site just for that...

This is actually more amusing if you 'view source' and have a look at the underlying code and comments ;)

I notice that if you go to LHC page 1, there are some new entries on the pick list in top-left corner
(or they have been there for some time, and I just have not noticed ...)

Quite correct, new today I think. LHCf Experiment, LHC CMS Experiment and (I think) LHC Coordination. Order has changed too with LHC Operation being pushed to the end.

The rest of the list looks like it may also have had some changes but I haven't paid very close attention to it in the past.

Nice series of movies

Post by Tau » Mon Apr 26, 2010 7:57 am

I am not sure if somebody already found these movies, but I like them:
http://www.collidingparticles.com/episodes.html

A bit off subject, but still nice reading is this article about the Tunnel Inspection Monorail: http://trshare.triumf.ca/~pac09proc/Pro ... rfp047.pdf

Don't know if this counts as cool... a report (of sorts) about the LHC... I suspect there are one or two inaccuracies in there - typical journalists.

Hope this isn't a duplicate, if is pardons.
LHC Programme Coordination web pages
http://lpc.web.cern.ch/lpc/
Which has the very interesting LHC Luminosity Plots
http://lpc.web.cern.ch/lpc/lumiplots.htm
Which shows pretty up to date Integrated Luminosity plots.

This is good site explaining some of intricacies of beam monitoring,etc.

Rather long but chock full of details about the current future plans (2010 - 2020 - 2030) for Cern and the LHC and injector chain
http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1275119/
Sadly no slides available but an eclectic mix of French, Irish, Italian, American accents.

Thanks for the link, playback was very strange on my machine, the video seemed to be about 15 seconds ahead of the audio, when viewing the flash video, which made following the slides very difficult.

A problem with my machine, or the video?
