Onedimensional kinetic description of nonlinear travelingpulse and travelingwave disturbances in long coasting charged particle beams
This study makes use of a onedimensional kinetic model to investigate the nonlinear longitudinal dynamics of a long coasting beam propagating through a perfectly conducting circular pipe with radius r _{w}. The average axial electric field is expressed as < E _{z} >=(∂/∂z)=e _{b}g _{0}∂λ _{b}/∂ze _{b}g _{2}r ^{2} _{w}∂ ^{3}λ _{b}/∂z ^{3}, where g _{0} and g _{2} are constant geometric factors, λ _{b}(z,t)=∫dp _{z}F _{b}(z,p _{z},t) is the line density of beam particles, and F _{b}(z,p _{z},t) satisfies the 1D Vlasov equation. Detailed nonlinear properties of travelingwave and travelingpulse (soliton) solutions with timestationary waveform are examined for a wide range of system parameters extending from moderateamplitudes to largeamplitude modulations of the beam charge density. Two classes of solutions for the beam distribution function are considered, corresponding to: (i) the nonlinear waterbag distribution, where F _{b}=const in a bounded region of p _{z}space; and (ii) nonlinear BernsteinGreenKruskal (BGK)like solutions, allowing for both trapped and untrapped particle distributions to interact with the selfgenerated electric field < E _{z} >.
