|Abstract||This paper extends the development of a self-consistent kinetic description of helically distorted relativistic electron beam equilibria for free electron laser applications to include particular conditions of beam propagation, not treated heretofore, which are of considerable practical interest. Radially confined equilibria are considered for a helically distorted electron beam propagating in the combined transverse wiggler and uniform axial guide fields described by B/sup 0/ = B/sub 0/e/sub z/ +deltaB = B/sub 0/e/sub z/-deltaB cos k/sub 0/z e/sub x/ -deltaB sin k/sub 0/ze/sub y/, where B/sub 0/ = const., deltaB = const., and lambda/sub 0/ = 2..pi../k/sub 0/ = const. is the axial wavelength of the wiggler field. It is assumed that the beam density and current are sufficiently small that the equilibrium self fields can be neglected in comparison with B/sup 0/. In this context, it is found that there are three useful (and exact) invariants (C/sub perpendicular/, C/sub h/, C/sub z/) associated with single-particle motion in the equilibrium field B/sub 0/e/sub z/ +deltaB. These invariants are used to construct radially confined Vlasov equilibria F/sup 0//sub b/ (C/sub perpendicular/, C/sub h/, C/sub z/) for an intense relativistic electron beam propagating in the z direction. Examples of both solid and hollow beam equilibria are considered, and it is shown that the transverse wiggler field can have a large modulational influence on the beam envelope, depending on the size of deltaB/B/sub 0/ and other parameters.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
