Title: Ultimate colliders for particle physics: Limits and possibilities

Abstract

The future of the world-wide HEP community critically depends on the feasibility of the concepts for the post-LHC Higgs factories and energy frontier future colliders. In this paper we overview the accelerator options based on traditional technologies and consider the need for plasma colliders, particularly, muon crystal circular colliders. We briefly address the ultimate energy reach of such accelerators, their advantages, disadvantages and limits in the view of perspectives for the far future of the accelerator-based particle physics and outline possible directions of R&D to address the most critical issues.
