Editorial Reviews

Review


"From [this book, readers] will learn a bit about the accelerators around the world, their technologies, and the physical principles used to create them. . . . Wilson takes care of the reader, leading him gently through some of the complexities of the real accelerator world -- imperfections and all. . . . [It] is an easily accessible descriptive walk through the physics and technologies of particle accelerators. As such it could be a useful read for scientists who find that their research depends heavily on use of the many different types of accelerators in use around the world." -- Physics Today

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 5, 2004
Format: Paperback
Very specialised book. Written mostly for engineers involved in designing accelerators, and graduate students in physics who might have experiments at an accelerator.
No abstruse theory here. A book for experimentalists. Wilson describes clearly the differences between cyclotrons and linear accelerators and synchrotrons. The advantages and disadvantages of each. With real life examples, like those at CERN (of course), and at SLAC and Fermilab.
It does seem that the baton is passing from the US in this field. The European scientists have somehow managed to keep their funding together, which Wilson praises. He undoubtedly help bring this about. Certainly, an impression from this book is that if you are starting out in experimental particle physics, you might do best to direct your efforts at CERN.
