Project X is a forefront Intensity Frontier facility, currently under development by Fermilab and both national and international partners, that would offer multi-MW proton beams at a variety of energies between 1 and 120 GeV.   The “Project X Physics Study” occurred at Fermilab in June 2012  and corresponding white papers are posted on this site.   The Physics Study engaged theorists, experimenters, and accelerator scientists in establishing and documenting a comprehensive vision of the physics opportunities at Project X, and integrating these opportunities within a coherent plan for development of detector capabilities and the accelerator complex.  The Study has 12 Working Groups, listed under "Scientific Programme" at left, six concerning the experimental program, one on lattice QCD, and five on enabling detector technology.  During the winter and spring of 2013 the content of the physics study and associated white papers led to the Project X Physics Book that is posted on the archive at:
