Particle Accelerator Physics: II

This volume continues the discussion of particle accelerator physics beyond the introduction found in volume I. Basic principles of beam dynamics already discussed in the first volume are expanded here into the nonlinear regime so as to tackle fundamental problems encountered in present day accelerator design and development. Nonlinear dynamics is discussed both in terms of the transverse phase space, to determine chromatic and geometric aberrations which limit the dynamic aperture, as well as the longitude phase space in connection with phase focusing at very small values of the momentum compaction. Whenever possible, effects derived theoretically are compared with observations made with existing accelerators.
