# Nested head-tail Vlasov solver

@article{Burov2014NestedHV, title={Nested head-tail Vlasov solver}, author={Alexey V. Burov}, journal={Physical Review Special Topics-accelerators and Beams}, year={2014}, volume={17}, pages={021007} }

Nested Head-Tail (NHT) is a Mathematica-based Vlasov solver for transverse oscillations in multi-bunch beams. It takes into account azimuthal, radial, coupled-bunch and beam-beam degrees of freedom, single- and inter-bunch dipole wakes, an arbitrary damper, beam-beam effects and Landau damping.
