Accelerator Physics (Fourth Edition), Paperback / softback Book

Accelerator Physics (Fourth Edition) Paperback / softback


Research and development of high energy accelerators began in 1911.

Since then, progresses achieved are:The impacts of the accelerator development are evidenced by the many ground-breaking discoveries in particle and nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, biology, biomedical physics, nuclear medicine, medical therapy, and industrial processing.

This book is intended to be used as a graduate or senior undergraduate textbook in accelerator physics and science.

It can be used as preparatory course material in graduate accelerator physics thesis research.

The text covers historical accelerator development, transverse betatron motion, synchrotron motion, an introduction to linear accelerators, and synchrotron radiation phenomena in low emittance electron storage rings, introduction to special topics such as the free electron laser and the beam-beam interaction.

Hamiltonian dynamics is used to understand beam manipulation, instability and nonlinearity.

Each section is followed by exercises, which are designed to reinforce the concept discussed and to solve a realistic accelerator design problem.
