Fundamentals of Beam Physics


  • First text to draw strong connections between charged particle and laser beam optics
  • Based on course work, class tested
  • Presents material in a very physics-oriented way, evading the jargon that is found in the technical field it surveys
  • Unifies the seemingly diverse subject matter wherever possible, anticipating the subtle points where students may need added clarification
  • Introduces the basic principles underlying the experimental technology one encounters in accelerators
  • Contains illustrative exercises closely linked to the text, a third of which are solved as examples
