Book Description

May 4, 2007 3540490434 978-3540490432 3rd

This book provides an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the field of high-energy particle acceleration and beam dynamics. This is the first modern and comprehensive textbook in the field. It begins by gathering the basic tools, recalling the essentials of electrostatics and electrodynamics as well as of particle dynamics in electromagnetic fields. It includes coverage of advanced topics of coupled beam dynamics. There is an exhaustive treatment of radiation from accelerated charges. Appendices gather useful mathematical and physical formulae, parameters and units, and solutions to the many end-of-chapter problems are given.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Particle Accelerator Physics is an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the field of high-energy particle acceleration and beam dynamics.

Part I gathers the basic tools, recalling the essentials of electrostatics and electrodynamics as well as of particle dynamics in electromagnetic fields.

Part II is an extensive primer in beam dynamics, followed in Part III by the introduction and description of the main beam parameters. Part IV is devoted to the treatment of perturbations in beam dynamics. Part V discusses the details of charged particle accleration. Part VI and Part VII introduce the more advanced topics of coupled beam dynamics and the description of very intense beams. Part VIII is an exhaustive treatment of radiation from accelerated charges and introduces important sources of coherent radiation such as synchrotrons and free-electron lasers. Part IX collects the appendices gathering useful mathematical and physical formulae, parameters and units. Solutions to many end-of-chapter problems are given.

This textbook is suitable for an intensive two-semester course starting at the advanced undergraduate level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Particle Accelerator Physics-Review November 16, 2008
Format:Hardcover
This text is the announced reading requirement for the United States Particle Accelerator School introduction (undergraduate) course, Fundamentals of Accelerator Physics and Technology with Simulation and Measurements Lab. The course is sponsored and scheduled to be held this year at Vanderbilt University in January 2009. I purchased the text to determine if I might gain from attending the course. As a technical school graduate, RF technician at an accelerator facility, and a non math-engineering-physics undergraduate degree holder, I found the text to be quite readable and informative. The author provides both the theoretical and the application of the material presented. This kept me comfortable with the sometimes exotic application of wave theory and particle dynamics. A number of end of chapter problems are provided as well as the solutions. However, not all problem solutions are provided and the author assumes the reader has obtained mastery of significant mathematics. This is no surprise since the target audience is engineering and physics majors. So, if the reader has taken calculus at a technical school and or a college of business in the United States then he or she should be prepared to learn many advanced concepts. As an electronics instructor from 1982 - 2003, I believe the book should include many more diagrams and photographs if it is intended to be used as an effective textbook in a modern US classroom. At this point, it has the look and feel of an updated 1980s text. I would suggest the publisher, editor and author (if living, I didn't find Professor Wiedemann listed as an active faculty member or researcher with a quick Google search- no slight intended) develop supporting multimedia and flesh out the solutions to the end of chapter problems.
