An Introduction to Particle Accelerators

Edmund Wilson


Many scientists and engineers spend their lives designing, constructing, and running accelerators, yet few universities include a study of them in their curricula. This book is a straightforward introduction used by undergraduates and postgraduate students as well as by professional staff attending the summer schools run by the big accelerator laboratories. Research physicists should read it for important background. It covers the essentials of the subject for accelerator physicists and engineers, and is at the level of the introductory courses provided by the CERN and US Accelerator schools. ... More

Keywords: physics, particle beams, synchrotron radiation, instabilities, applications, industry, research, acceleration techniques
