  • Published 1985 in IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science
An introduction to the problems related to space charge calculations in isochronous cyclotrons is followed by the presentation of a new computer simulation model for the longitudinal space charge effects. The new model uses an analytical tansformation to reduce from three to two dimensions and a particle-in-cell method to calculate the charge distribution… CONTINUE READING
