Electromagnetic Modeling in Accelerator Designs

  • Richard K. Cooper
  • K. C. Dominic Chan


Through the years, electromagnetic modeling using computers has proved to be a cost-effective tool for accelerator designs. Traditionally, electromagnetic modeling of accelerators has been limited to resonator and magnet designs in two dimensions. In recent years, with the availability of powerful computers, electromagnetic modeling of accelerators has advanced significantly.
