This report provides a description of unbunched beam stochastic cooling in the framework of control theory. The main interest in the investigation is concentrated on the beam stability in an active cooling system. A stochastic cooling system must be considered as a closed-loop, similar to the feedback systems used to damp collective instabilities. These systems, which are able to act upon themselves, are potentially unstable. The self-consistent solution for the beam motion is derived by means…

On stochastic cooling of bunched beams from fluctuation and kinetic theory

A theoretical formalism for stochastic phase-space cooling of bunched beams in storage rings is developed on the dual basis of classical fluctuation theory and kinetic theory of many-body systems in

Some fundamental aspects of fluctuations and coherence in charged-particle beams in storage rings

A conceptual survey and exposition is presented of some fundamendal aspects of fluctuations and coherence, as well as the interplay between the two, in coasting charged‐particle beams—both continuous

A comparison has been performed between coasting and bunched particle beams pertaining to the mechanism of stochastic cooling. In the case where particles occupy the entire sinusoidal RF bucket, the

Bunched beam stochastic cooling in the Fermilab Tevatron Collider

In order to double the integrated luminosity of the Tevatron collider in the next running period, a 4-8 GHz bunched beam betatron stochastic cooling system has been designed. The horizontal and
