Title: On the feasibility of a pulsed 14 TeV c.m.e. muon collider in the LHC tunnel

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the technical feasibility, key machine parameters and major challenges of a 14 TeV c.m.e. muon-muon collider in the LHC tunnel. The luminosity of the collider is evaluated for three alternative muon sources—the PS synchrotron, one of a type developed by the US Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) and a low-emittance option based on resonant muon pair production. Project affordability is also discussed.
