    Controlled Auto-Ignition (CAI) or Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) combustion is a combustion process which utilises homogeneous air/fuel mixture, but combustion is initiated by fuel self-ignition. It therefore combines features of both SI and CI combustion. During compression process, local in-homogeneity results in non-unified temperature throughout combustion chamber. When hotter parts overcome their activation energies, combustion in these parts starts. Energy extherm heats the

    The large Hadron Collider, a 27-kilometer long particle accelerator, the latest in a long series of experiments designed to probe the inner workings of matter. Located in a tunnel beneath the Swiss/French border near Gebeva, it was turned into a great fanfare in late 2008, An accident delayed operations by a further year and only in 2010 did physics data-taking start in earnest. The talk will cover the motivations for building particle accelerators, the history of particle physics and the machin
