From the Web to the Grid and Beyond: Computing Paradigms Driven by High-Energy Physics
Born after World War II, large-scale experimental high-energy physics (HEP) has found itself limited ever since by available accelerator, detector and computing technologies. Accordingly, HEP has made significant contributions to the development of these fields, more often than not driving their innovations. The invention of the World Wide Web at CERN is merely the ...more

I work as a computer engineer in HEP. I do not particularly like to read books related to computing, and I have never come across another book that deals with computing in HEP. But, after finishing this book, I would say it's a must for computer engineers entering the HEP community, trying to find order in or reason for the seeming software and infrastructure chaos. The book is revealing, for what challenges physicists have to overcome to pursue their research, secure funding, and in what kind ...more
