This a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to advance Particle and Accelerator Physics. Participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer. By default, you can run the classic LHC@home application Sixtrack, for simulations of accelerator physics, and help researchers at CERN to improve the LHC.

Other LHC@home simulations that utilizes virtualization to run applications for Theory and experiment simulations for ATLAS, CMS and LHCb are also available. In order to run these, you need to install VirtualBox and enable the additional applications in your LHC@home project preferences.

Please visit the LHC@home web site for more documentation, data and instructions. If you have any problem, question or doubt please visit the Message Boards, Questions and Answers and FAQ sections of the project.

CMS application job queue is being run down.
We want to update the WMAgent job controller, so I've stopped the next batch (I hope). We should run out of jobs in 10-12 hours, so set any machine running CMS tasks to No New Tasks as soon as practicable. Should be up again tomorrow. 26 Jun 2017, 15:59:30 UTC · Comment

There will be a (very) short interruption while I
install a new sixtrack_validator. Should fix null/empty
fort.10 and the nasty "outlier" problem.
See SixTrack Application, sixtrack_validator for more news and details.
