1 Eric Prebys, FNAL

2  I hope this course will provide you with…  a rigorous foundation of the underlying physics of particle accelerators, Fairly sophisticated understanding of their operations. The background to pursue more advanced studies on your own (or in further classes).  a quantitative overview of the state of the art, as well as current and future challenges.  familiarity with enabling and related technologies: Magnets RF Instrumentation etc. USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 2

3  Instructor: Eric Prebys, FNAL    TA,Computer labs: Timofey Zolkin, University of Chicago   Grader: Patrick McChesney, Indiana University  USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 3

4  USPAS “Accelerator Physics” is intended to cover in two very intense weeks the material that would be in a full semester graduate course at a top tier university  That’s the mandate; there’s nothing I can do about it  Students have a pretty broad range of backgrounds, so some will struggle more than others.  If you get behind, you will never catch up!  Ask questions  Attend help sessions  Work together  This is my first time teaching this course, and if I go off track, we all will never catch up  I appreciate feedback and constructive criticism USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 4

5  I’m going to spend today on the basics, as well as a fairly quantitive overview of everything we’re going to learn  This will hopefully level the playing field in terms of previous experience and exposure to the concepts  From tomorrow through about the middle of next week, we will cover the “classic” accelerator physics material.  I’ll spend the last couple of days focusing in detail on topics of current interest  Might have to sacrifice a little rigor to leave time for this. USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 5

6  I chose Edwards and Syphers “An Introduction to the Physics or High Energy Accelerators” as the primary course text because  It’s the book I learned from  The scope is appropriate to the course (we’ll pretty much cover the whole book).  I find the mathematical level appropriate to a broad range of students.  It was written by Fermilab people, so it uses conventions that I’m familiar with.  Like most people who use it, I’ll switch the order of Chapter 2 (longitudinal motion) and 3 (transverse motion) USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 6

7  Welmut Wiedemann, “Particle Accelerator Physics”  Probably the most complete and thorough book around (originally two volumes)  Well written  Scope and mathematical level perhaps a bit much for this class  Edmund Wilson, “Particle Accelerators”  Concise reference on a number of major topics  Available in paperback (important if you are paying)  A bit light for this course  Klaus Wille “The Physics of Particle Accelerators”  Same comments  S.Y. Lee, “Accelerator Physics”  More or less equivalent to Edwards and Syphers  I prefer the organization of E&S  Fermilab “Accelerator Concepts” (“Rookie Book”)   Particularly chapters II-IV USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 7

8  Most days, we’ll lecture until 4-5.  We will have computer labs (at least)  This week: Wednesday and Friday mornings 9-12  Next week: Monday through Wednesday, 1-2PM  Perhaps some small assignments in addition  Homework every day except Friday and next Thursday, to be turned in the next day.  Students are encouraged to work together on homework  Take home exam next Thursday  Students are to work alone on exam.  As lectures, homework, and other material are ready, they will be put at:  USPAS, Knoxville, TN, Jan , 2014 Lecture 0 - Formalities 8
