Much more than a computer physics book, this text documents how the development of high-energy computing has fundamentally changed the way we inhabit this planet. Edited by the computing coordinator for CERN’s ALICE project, this remarkable volume brings together pioneering participants who discuss several key computing technologies that have evolved out of the high-energy physics community, including the Internet. It also covers the tumultuous evolution of the hottest topic in computing today, the use of grid computing with its unlimited potential. Specifically, it discusses High Energy (Particle) Physics (HEP), which may ultimately have larger impact on society than that of the World Wide Web.
