by Stanley Humphries

**Publisher**: Wiley-Interscience 2002**ISBN/ASIN**: 0471600148**ISBN-13**: 9780471600145**Number of pages**: 849

**Description**:

Addresses the topics vital to understanding high-power accelerators and high-brightness charged particle beams. Presents a unified description of charged particle beams that is detailed enough for use as a text and comprehensive enough to stand as a reference. This treatment of particle beam physics prepares students to read the literature and to use accelerators effectively. Describes the basic ideas behind modern beam applications such as stochastic cooling, high-brightness injectors and the free electron laser.
