Someone has been working hard behind the scenes.

See the link on the front page: SixTrack project.

There now are several pages with explanations, photos and annimations of SixTrack and accelerators.

Neat, and very informative, although the Why do we need numerical simulations? page needs just a little touch up. The page goes "off screen" to the right.

On "Nature" 550,375-379 (19 October 2017) there is an article which I cannot link. "Solving a Higgs optimization problem with quantum annealing for machine learning". Authors are Alex Mott, Joshua Job, Jean-Roch Vlimant, Daniel Lidar & Maria Spiropulu. The computer used is a D-Wave located at the University of Southern California.

All those links are dead. Can someone provide a description about the science that is running on our home computers? Any description what exactly the calculations are needed for?

I'm having trouble convincing new ppl to join the @home effort.

Here are two new projects from the link that maeax posted, though they are not on LHC@home:

Other things to look forward to in Run 3 include the operation of two new experiments, FASER and SND@LHC, designed to look for physics beyond the Standard Model; special proton–helium collisions to measure how often the antimatter counterparts of protons are produced in these collisions; and collisions involving oxygen ions that will improve physicists’ knowledge of cosmic-ray physics and the quark–gluon plasma, a state of matter that existed shortly after the Big Bang.
