Documents relevant to LHC Machine Advisory Committee Meeting No. 2, 13-15 May 1996

This page is provided solely for the convenience of members of the LHC Machine Advisory Committee.

The following list may be incomplete and may be updated by electronic mail.

Please note that some references (e.g. the LHC Project Notes) are informal working documents, distributed locally.

Of course, the principal reference for most subjects is the LHC Conceptual Design Report (CERN/AC/95-05(LHC)).

In order to avoid wasteful distribution of large amounts of paper, I would like to ask you to respond by requesting paper copies of those documents which interest you. It may be possible to send copies electronically (e.g. Postscript files) or by fax to speed up delivery. Please give your preferences or say if a few days delay for normal air mail would be adequate.
