Vlasov and Fokker-Planck Equations
Mathematical tools have been derived in previous chapters to describe the dynamics of singly charged particles in electromagnetic fields. While the knowledge of single-particle dynamics is essential for the development of particle beam transport systems, we are still missing a formal treatment of the behavior of multiparticle beams. In principle a multiparticle beam can be described simply by calculating the trajectories of every single particle within this beam, a procedure that is obviously too inefficient to be useful for the description of any real beam involving a very large number of particles.
