Introduction

Abstract

The development of charged particle accelerators and it’s underlying principles builds on the theoretical and experimental progress in fundamental physical phenomena. While active particle accelerator experimentation started only in this century, it depended on the basic physical understanding of electromagnetic phenomena as investigated both theoretically and experimentally mainly during the nineteenth and beginning twentieth century. In this introduction we will recall briefly the history leading to particle accelerator development, applications and introduce basic definitions and formulas governing particle beam dynamics.
