As one preliminary effort towards the development of future generations of powerful yet cost-efficient colliders, a six-month study of muon collider technology and physics is run from October 2000 to April 2001. The study's tasks are organized under five working groups in the areas of : physics and detectors, cooling, acceleration, the collider ring, and miscellaneous topics. This publication on CD-ROM reflects the results of the study with a concise write-up and more detailed and specialized write-ups on the subfields associated with each of the four topical working groups, along with individual contributions. All these make the proceedings on CD-ROM a very useful reference to students, physicists, engineers in high energy physics and accelerator physics.
