Fundamentals of Beam Physics

J. B. Rosenzweig


This book presents beam physics using a unified approach, emphasizing basic concepts and analysis methods. While many existing resources in beams and accelerators are specialized to aid the professional practitioner, this text anticipates the needs of physics students. The central concepts underpinning the physics of accelerators, charged particle, and photon beams are built up from familiar, intertwining components, such as electromagnetism, relativity, and Hamiltonian dynamics. These components are woven into an illustrative set of examples that allow investigation of a variety of physical s ... More

Keywords: charged particle, photon beams, electromagnetism, relativity, Hamiltonian dynamics, single particle dynamics, linear accelerators, circular accelerators, laser beams, synchrotrons
