Nonlinear Problems in Accelerator Physics contains the proceedings of the International Workshop on Nonlinear Problems in Accelerator Physics. Consisting only of invited papers, the book focuses on resolving problems associated with nonlinear effects-essential for the development of the next generation of particle accelerators. It facilitates an understanding of accelerator optical systems. Topics covered include Hamiltonian dynamics (such as CHAOS), computer codes for design of focusing systems, and spectrometers. The book is of interest to researchers in high energy, nuclear, electron, ion and optical beam physics, and applied mathematics.
