General Overview

The University of Maryland Dynamical Systems and Accelerator Theory Group has been carrying out long-term research work in the general area of Dynamical Systems with a particular emphasis on applications to Accelerator Physics. This work is broadly divided into two tasks:

Brief descriptions of each of these tasks can be read by clicking on the Research Tasks link above. Work is devoted both to the development of new methods and the application of these methods to problems of current interest in accelerator physics including the theoretical performance of present and proposed high energy machines.

In addition to its research effort, the Dynamical Systems and Accelerator Theory Group is actively engaged in the education of students and post-doctoral research associates. To this end, it presents a regular graduate seminar course in accelerator physics, directs graduate students in M.S. and Ph.D. thesis research, and guides and fosters the research of Post-doctoral Research Associates and Visiting Scientists. Our work is supported in part by the U.S. Department of Energy grant DEFG0296ER40949.
