Abstract
CMS is a general purpose experiment, designed to study the physics of pp
collisions at 14 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It currently involves
more than 2000 physicists from more than 150 institutes and 37 countries. The
LHC will provide extraordinary opportunities for particle physics based on
its unprecedented collision energy and luminosity when it begins operation in
2007.
The principal aim of this report is to present the strategy of CMS to explore
the rich physics programme offered by the LHC. This volume demonstrates
the physics capability of the CMS experiment. The prime goals of CMS are to
explore physics at the TeV scale and to study the mechanism of electroweak
symmetry breaking--through the discovery of the Higgs particle or otherwise.
