"An Introduction to Beam Physics covers the principles and applications of differential algebra, a powerful new mathematical tool. The authors discuss the uses for the computation of transfer maps for all kinds of particle accelerators or any weakly nonlinear dynamical system, such as planetary orbits. The book is of interest to graduate students and researchers working in a broad range of disciplines, including applied mathematics, beam physics (accelerator physics, particle optics, geometric light optics), astronomy, and electrical engineering. Topics covered include transfer matrices, mechanics and electrodynamics, nonlinear motion, differential algebra, the structure of the classes, computer implementations, nonlinear maps, one pass systems, and repetitive systems"--
"Preface It has been 8 years since we started this book project, which originated from the lecture note of a graduate level course taught by my coauthors at Michigan State University. Compared to the lecture note, the present book is more than twice as long, which is the result of a few contributing factors. The obvious reason is the requirement that a book has to be more self contained than a lecture note. The more important reason is that, over the past decade, the field saw significant development in a few areas and new materials have been added to reflect the change. A couple of examples are an overview of the development of aberration-corrected electron microscopes and the treatment of the chicane bunch compressor. The last reason is more pesonal in nature. Over the past decades, the field of beam physics have become so diverse that each area has developed it's own way of treating the problem and communications among different areas have been problematic. It's been our belief that modern map method is a good tool to reunite this divese field and that this book offers the best platform to realize this goal. On one hand, we cover as widely as possible the topics in different areas of the field of beam physics, ranging from electron telescopes, spectrometers to particle accelerators. On the other hand, we attempt to present traditionally more advanced topics, such as the resonances in circular accelerators, in an introductroy book using modern map method, hence avoiding the elegant but more involved Hamiltonian formalism. The result is a book that requires no prior knowledge of beam physics and only basic understanding of college level classical machenics, calculus and ordinary differential equations"--
