The Black Book of Quantum Chromodynamics

This book by Fermilab author John Campbell, with Joey Huston and Frank Krauss, is written as an advanced primer for physics at the LHC. It provides a pedagogical guide for the calculation of QCD and Standard Model predictions, using state-of-the-art theoretical frameworks. The predictions are compared to both the legacy data from the Tevatron, and the data obtained thus far from the LHC, with intuitive connections between data and theory supplied where possible.

Collisions and Collaboration: The Organization of Learning in the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC

This book aims to give a broad organizational and strategic understanding of the nature of Big Science by analyzing the ATLAS Collaboration. It examines how, in the face of high levels of uncertainty and risk, ambitious scientific aims can be achieved by complex organizational networks characterized by cultural diversity, informality, and trust — and where Big Science can head next.

Overleaf Pro Institutional Subscription Trial

Overleaf is an online LaTeX and Rich Text collaborative writing and publishing tool with integrated real-time preview. We now have a trial institutional subscription of Overleaf Pro expiring 5/24/18.

To use Overleaf Pro, request an account from the Fermilab library, and then go to Overleaf.com to log in. If you are currently using the free version of Overleaf, you will be automatically added to the Fermilab Pro account, and your data will be transferred. If you do not have an existing Overleaf account, you will receive an email invitation to create one. After the trial, using the Fermilab Overleaf Pro Institutional subscription will require a task code charge annually.
