Is that the experiment where Picts are accelerated to just short of
the speed of light in order to smash through to the Roman Empire? ;-)
I don't know what the main computational challenges are to the LHC
researchers. The stuff in the press has mostly been about
infrastructure --- how to store the gigabytes of data per second that
they end up keeping, out of the petabytes that are produced in the
first place (or something).
