Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The first half deals with the motion of a single particle under the influence of electronic and magnetic fields. The basic language of linear and circular accelerators is developed. The principle of phase stability is introduced along with phase oscillations in linear accelerators and synchrotrons. Presents a treatment of betatron oscillations followed by an excursion into nonlinear dynamics and its application to accelerators. The second half discusses intensity dependent effects, particularly space charge and coherent instabilities. Includes tables of parameters for a selection of accelerators which are used in the numerous problems provided at the end of each chapter.

About the Author

The authors, D.A. Edwards and M.J. Syphers, are both with the SSC Laboratory, Dallas, Texas.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ray Fliller III on May 18, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book is a superb introduction to the field of acclereator physics. Starting with a basic knowledge of relativity and E&M is all that is necessary. Edwards and Syphers do a great job of "building" an accelerator in their book and using operating parameters of real world accelerators (mostly the Tevatron) for their numerical examples.
My only complaint is that some of the problems could be worded more clearly and concisely
