The authors review the techniques used to measure the energy of elementary particles. The methods discussed span more than 20 orders of magnitude in energy, ranging from a small fraction of an electronvolt, where relic remainders of the Big Bang are being looked for, to the 1020 eV domain, where the highest-energy cosmic rays can be found. The emphasis is, however, on techniques employed in particle physics for studying collision processes at accelerators in the GeV-TeV range.
