Description1 online resource (x, 177 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"This monograph begins with a review of the basic equations of spin motion in particle accelerators. It then reviews how polarized protons can be accelerated to several tens of GeV, using as examples the preaccelerators of HERA, a 6.3 km long cyclic accelerator at DESY/Hamburg. Various methods for computing the invariant spin field, the adiabatic spin invariant, and the amplitude-dependent spin tune are presented. Moreover, several high-energy spin-orbit dynamical effects are discussed which go beyond conventional models of spin dynamics and have been observed in simulations with these novel methods. The book is suitable for researchers of the field and for introducing students to this field of research."--Jacket
