High Energy Polarized Proton Beams: A Modern View
ISBN: 0387346791 | 4.3 MB PDF | Author: Georg Heinz Hoffstaetter | Publisher: Springer
This book deals with the acceleration and storage of polarized proton beams in cyclic accelerators. Basic equations of spin motion are reviewed, the invariant spin field is introduced, and an adiabatic invariant of spin motion is derived. These modern concepts contribute to the optimization of high energy accelerators for polarized beams. It also allows the analysis of high order depolarizing resonances. Several numerical methods for computing the invariant spin field are presented and results are displayed in numerous illustrations. The reader will gain a much clearer view of spin dynamics at high energy than has hitherto been available.
