Abstract We present a candidate design for a high-energy high-luminosity {mu}{sup +}{minus}{mu}{sup {minus}} collider, with E{sub cm}=4 TeV, L=3{times}10{sup 34} cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1}, using only existing technology. The design uses a rapid-cycling medium-energy proton synchrotron, which produces proton beam pulses which are focused onto two {pi}-producing targets, with two {pi}-decay transport lines producing {mu}{sup +}{close_quote}s and {mu}{sup {minus}}{close_quote}s. The {mu}{close_quote}s are collected, rf-rotated, cooled and compressed into a recirculating linac for acceleration, and then transferred into a storage ring collider. The keys to high luminosity are maximal {mu} collection and cooling; innovations with these goals are presented, and future plans for collider development are discussed. This example demonstrates a novel high-energy collider type, which will permit exploration of elementary particle physics at energy frontiers beyond the reach of currently existing and proposed electron and hadron colliders. {copyright} {ital 1995 American Institute of Physics.}
