Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


This proceedings assesses long term experimental prospects for further examining the elementary particle building blocks, space-time structure and organizing principles of our natural universe by using many TeV muon colliders. Besides examining the accelerator technologies of very high energy muon colliders, a classification scheme for possible elementary particle discoveries is presented and some examples of possible discoveries are discussed.
