Item description for An Introduction To The Physics Of Particle Accelerators (Second Edition) by Mario Conte & William W. Mackay...
This book provides a concise and coherent introduction to the physics of particle accelerators, with attention being paid to the design of an accelerator for use as an experimental tool. In the second edition, new chapters on spin dynamics of polarized beams as well as instrumentation and measurements are included, with a discussion of frequency spectra and Schottky signals. The additional material also covers quadratic Lie groups and integration highlighting new techniques using Cayley transforms, detailed estimation of collider luminosities, and new problems.
Contents: Introduction; Equations of Motion for Weak Focusing; Mechanics of Trajectories; Optical Elements with Static Magnetic Fields; Strong Focusing; Lattice Exercises; Synchrotron Oscillations; Synchrotron Radiation; RF Linear Accelerators; Resonances; Space-Charge Effects; How to Baffle Liouville; Spin Dynamics; Position Measurements and Spectra.

Great Accelerator Text Feb 12, 2010
I am greatly enjoying my read-through of this textbook. It is written in a very easy manner to follow, which makes self study much more viable. The topics are all covered very accessibly, and the audience is the beginning but serious accelerator junkie (grad student). I heartily recommend this book to anyone beginning their study of accelerator or beam physics.
