Early Physics with ATLAS at the LHC

 

Dr. Ian Hinchliffe

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

 

Abstract:

 

The Large Hadron collider will start operation at CERN in 2007. The LHC represents the largest increase in effective energy for over 30 years.

The ATLAS experiment is also nearing completion. I will discuss some of the physics goals of ATLAS and the LHC and in particular focus on the physics results that can be anticipated during the first few years of LHC operation
