Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 128)


The following notes are intended as a review of the main properties of e + e colliders, divided into 2 categories: storage rings and linear colliders; the basic physics, beam characteristics, limitations on beam current and density and their influence on the luminosity will be discussed.
