About this book
This is an open access book.
This course-tested text is an ideal starting point for engineers and physicists entering the field of particle accelerators. The fundamentals are comprehensively introduced, derivations of essential results are provided and a consistent notation style used throughout the book allows readers to quickly familiarize themselves with the field, providing a solid theoretical basis for further studies.
Emphasis is placed on the essential features of the longitudinal motion of charged particle beams, together with the corresponding RF generation and power amplification devices for synchrotron and storage ring systems. In particular, electrical engineering aspects such as closed-loop control of system components are discussed.
The book also offers a valuable resource for graduate students in physics, electronics engineering, or mathematics looking for an introductory and self-contained text on accelerator physics.

“This book undoubtedly fills a gap in the panorama of textbooks dedicated to accelerator physics. I would recommend it to any physicist or engineer entering the field. I enjoyed reading it as a comprehensive and clear introduction to some aspects of accelerator RF engineering, as well as to some of the theoretical foundations of accelerator physics and, in general, of classical mechanics.” (Gianluigi Arduini, CERN Courier, April, 2016)
