  • The passage of a charged particle through a region of nonvanishing electromagnetic fields (e.g., a bending magnet, multipole magnet, spectrometer, electrostatic lens, electromagnetic velocity separator, etc.) can be described by a transfer map. In the magnetic case, computation of this map in canonical coordinates requires a knowledge of the vector potential and its multiple derivatives within the region. This information is shown to be calculable from boundary data with the aid of Helmholtz's… CONTINUE READING
