The solution of the linear equations of motion allows us to follow a single charged particle through an arbitrary array of magnetic elements. Often, however, it is necessary to consider a beam of many particles and it would be impractical to calculate the trajectory for every individual particle. We, therefore, look for some representation of the whole particle beam.
