Collective Effects Group

The group conducts theoretical research on collective effects in beam dynamics, and in particular those concerning beam instabilities. We support the accelerators existing at SLAC and also contribute to new projects such as ILC and LCLS.

The group also has another, unofficial name, BIG, or Beam Instabilities Group.

We have a regular meeting on Fridays at 9:00 am in Room 230, Bldg. 41. The meeting announcements are sent out by email. If you would like to be included in the mailing list, please contact G. Stupakov.
