- In this report we have tried to demonstrate how a 20 x 400 GeV eP facility at the CBA will complement the future physics of high energy e+e/sup -/ and hadron-hadron colliders. By offering the first glimpse of the physics of 17 TeV muon and neutrino beams, an eP collider will extend tests of the standard model by about an order of magnitude in spacelike momentum transfer, and thus close the final kinematic gap of knowledge about electro-weak processes. It will be especially interesting to test whether the lefthanded nature of the charged current observed at low spacelike momentum transfers persists to large, spacelike momentum transfers. A high energy eP collider also enables unique tests of QCD such as a study of high Q/sup 2/ scale breaking and the high P/sub t/ QCD Compton process. In addition to probing small distance behavior in kinematic regions orthogonal to other collider facilities, an eP facility will generate data useful to understanding the physics of e+e/sup -/ and hadron-hadron collisions. The current jet produced in the high energy eP neutral current process is produced against a single electron which can be used to predict the momentum of the quark which gives rise to the jet. Hence the central problem in jet physics of deducing the kinematics of a quark by measurement of its hadronization jet can be studied under uniquely controlled circumstances. Finally the high Q/sup 2/ structure functions of the proton which are essential in understanding hard process in hadron-hadron scattering can only be cleanly measured in an eP collider.
