M4 charge summary  (full text of charge)

  1. Develop a vision and a long-term plan for the US hadron collider program.
  2. Examine the central physics and technology issues, and specify the most critical ones.
  3. Identify the technology developments and accelerator physics experiments needed to prove a future machine feasible.
  4. Evaluate and estimate the technological and physics limitations on ultimate energy and luminosity.
  5. Evaluate the recently completed VLHC Design Study, and compare with other potential approaches.
  6. Develop a prioritized R&D plan to establish the above goals, including a cost and schedule estimate.
