A super-table is a spreadsheet that is used to describe the performance of high energy colliders. The columns of the super-table are major parameters that describe the collider performance such as peak luminosity, integrated luminosity, intensity, emittance, etc. The rows of the super-table display the values for a given collider store. The primary users of the super-table are accelerator physicists, experimenters, and major system managers. The super-table gives these people a general overview of how the collider is performing and where the major bottlenecks to collider performance occur. The super-table is of most use when the collider is in routine operations and the collider configuration is not changing drastically from store to store such as occurs during the initial commissioning period.
The most important characteristic of a collider’s performance is phase space density. To present a general overview, the super-table must present this information clearly and not obscure the information by recording an overwhelmingly large amount of parameters. Therefore, the super-table is not intended for use by accelerator operations experts to diagnose specific or detailed accelerator problems.
