Title: Comment on the Word 'Cooling' as it is Used in Beam Physics

Abstract

Beam physicists use the word 'cooling' differently than it is used by the general public or even by other physicists. It is recommended that we no longer use this term, but replace it with some other term such as: 'Phase Density Cooling' (PDF) or 'damping', or alternatively 'Liouville Cooling', which would make our field more easily understood by outsiders.
