This article needs a couple of special relativity formulae as a rationale of colliders MvR 17:22, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

The second last sentence[edit]

The second last sentence in this article doesn't make sense. Here it is: The collider setup is harder to construct but has the great advantage, that according to special relativity the energy of an inelastic collision between two particle approaching each other with a given velocity is not just 4 times as high as in the case of one particle resting (as it would be in non-relativistic physics) but can be orders of magnitude higher for relativistic speeds.

Due to grammatical errors, the intended meaning of this sentence is unclear. There should be a comma before the last "but". There should not be a comma straight after "advantage". There should be a comma before "according" and one straight after "relativity". What is the last part of this sentence supposed to mean? The energy can be an order of magnitude? Higher for relativistic speeds? Don't particle accelerators already use relativistic speeds anyway? Since the person who wrote this article can't even understand basic grammar, I don't trust their understanding of advanced physics.

Massively incomplete[edit]

This article is massively incomplete, it's barely even a stub. The history of colliders in the article stops at 1971! There's no mention of, well, just about everything: the particles which are accelerated, tracking, focussing, energy, speed, luminosity, bunching, detectors, magnets, cryogenics, injection, data output, discoveries, disasters, B factories, HERA, DESY, Belle II, BaBar, KEK as an international testbed for new hardware, LEP versions, The Tevatron and its two detectors, the LHC and its four detectors, future colliders CLIC, ILC, Muon accelerator (including Neutrino Factory), the difference between a collider and a synchrotron. For starters.

In addition there needs to be a category "Colliders". And where's the link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_accelerators_in_particle_physics#Colliders ? Mollwollfumble (talk) 11:08, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
