Lectures in Accelerator Theory

Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 66)


Accelerator theory is a broad area of study involving the behaviour of particle beams. Well known examples are the theory of particle acceleration and the theory of beam stability in linear focusing systems. Out of the many categories, I have chosen to describe three phenomena taken from (1) the theory of single particle motion in nonlinear fields; (2) the theory of high intensity coherent motion and; (3) the theory of current accumulation.
