Morning,

could one of the project staff give some more insight into the actual work being done by LHC classic in comparison to the new LHC 2.0? Are these the same calculations on a smaller scale (without Cern VM and Virtualbox needed) or are we crunching something completely different?

Thanks

The projects are compleatly different.

LHC 1.0 is used to align the beams in the LHC
LHC 2.0 is used to simulate particle collisions

This is the scince for 2.0, http://mcplots.cern.ch/
