Hi
I am trying to find the equations of a charged particle inside a dipole & quadripole. Practically, I need to write a simulation program for it which assumes a beam passing through a dipolequadripoledipole which are setting around an arc. Is there some recommended literature ? Of course, I am not just interested into the classical relation of calculating the radius of the bended particle, rather than the px,py, exiting_angle etc. For instance, I found in some outdated code, that costheta = q/sqrt(px*px+1) but could not find how to derive this formula. Any help/tips appreciated. Regards

More recent? Do you think the laws of physics have changed in the last few years?

Probably you missed that my library does not have it..so any other book suggestion ?

"Beam optics" is a good keyword. Or just check what your library has.
