Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration
by Stanley Humphries
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience 1999
Number of pages: 593
An introductory text on the physics of charged particle acceleration and transport. Both low energy and high energy accelerators are covered, so that the material is relevant to a wide variety of applications. Provides a detailed discussion of the role of ferromagnetic materials in accelerators, and a review of ferromagnetic materials and permanent magnets. Offers a unique review of high voltage phenomena and pulsed power circuits--vacuum breakdown, Marx generators, transmission lines, pulse forming networks and pulsed beam diagnostics. It's also the only text to present material on linear induction accelerator.

The Radiation Laboratory in Berkeley, California, was the birthplace of particle accelerators, radioisotopes, and modern big science. This volume is a saga of physics and finance in the Great Depression, when a new kind of science was born.

This is an introduction to some of the basic ideas and tools required for theoretical analysis of collider data. Several examples of Standard Model processes at electron-positron and hadron colliders are considered to illustrate these ideas.

The text presents the major accelerator physics issues of the Very Large Hadron Collider as examined by the Design Study collaboration and provides a basis for discussion and further studies of VLHC accelerator parameters and design philosophies.

With the LHC up, the focus of high energy physics will soon turn to an interpretation of LHC data in terms of the physics of electroweak symmetry breaking and the TeV scale. We present here models for new TeV-scale physics and their LHC signatures.
