Particle Motion in Electromagnetic Fields
The motion of charged particles moving in an electromagnetic field are determined by the Lorentz force. In this chapter we consider some special applications: uniform fields, electric and magnetic lenses, scattering, and a kinetic field formulation of the equations.
