Big Data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
(11/25/2013) 12 minutes


The two large collaborations ATLAS and CMS at the LHC are probing nature across 15 orders of magnitude. They do so using detectors with O(100)Million electronic channels that record information from proton proton collisions every 25 nanoseconds. At UCSD, we have been involved at many levels: data acquisition, software design, algorithms, global computing infrastructure, the Higgs discovery that led to this year's Nobel Prize in Physics among many other physics topics.
