Periodicityyearly recurring course
Language of instructionEnglish

AbstractThe effect of nonlinearities on the beam dynamics of charged particles will be discussed. For the nonlinear beam transport, Lie-Methods in combination with differential algebra (DA) and truncated power series (TPS) will be introduced. In the second part we will discuss advanced concepts such as laser plasma wakefield acceleration.
ObjectiveModel for nonlinear beam dynamics can be applied to new or existing particle accelerators. Some of the most important papers in the field are discussed (as part of the exercises).

Advanced accelerator concepts are analysed and a toy model of a
laser plasma wakefield accelerator is developed.

Prerequisites / NoticeIdeally Particle Accelerator Physics and Modelling 1 (PAM-1), however at the beginning of the semester, a crash course is offered introducing the minimum level of particle accelerator modeling needed to follow. This lecture is also suited for PhD. Students.
