This manual provides solutions to the problems given in the second edition of the textbook entitled An Introduction to the Physics of Particle Accelerators. Simple-to-solve problems play a useful role as a first check of the student's level of knowledge whereas difficult problems will test the student's capacity of finding the bearing of the problems in an interdisciplinary environment. The solutions to several problems will require strong engagement of the student, not only in accelerator physics but also in more general physical subjects, such as the profound approach to classical mechanics (discussed in Chapter 3) and the subtleties of spin dynamics (Chapter 13).


Equations of Motion for Weak Focusing; Mechanics of Trajectories; Optical Elements with Static Magnetic Fields; Strong Focusing; Lattice Exercises; Synchrotron Oscillations; Synchrotron Radiation; RF Linear Accelerators; Resonances; How to Baffle Liouville; Spin Dynamics; Topics in Instrumentation and Beam Measurements.
