The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will open up a new era in high energy physics.
The expected large cross sections for heavy-flavour production in proton-proton collisions at √s = 14 TeV will allow detailed studies of production mechanisms and an extensive test of QCD. Since charm and beauty has been proposed as a good probe to study hot QCD matter (the so-called Quark-Gluon Plasma), the understanding of the production mechanisms in elementary proton-proton collisions is of primary importance as reference for studies in heavy-ion collisions.
In this talk, the heavy-flavour physics program of the ALICE, ATLAS and CMS experiments will be reviewed.
