Because of the predominance of large emittances, muon storage rings have a tendency to being rather sensitive to nonlinear effects. In this paper we study the effects of the nonlinearities due to the lattice elements’ fringe fields, which have a fundamentally different behavior from normal multipole terms. It is found that for given scenarios for lattices and emittances, the fringe field effects have dramatic influences on the dynamics and stability of particles and hence require careful study of correction options. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The ortho-para conversion due to the interaction between the nuclear magnetic moments and the atomic electron is considered in the muonic molecule (ppmu;)e produced in the ortho state. It is shown that the rate of this transition is w ≈0.466 s[sup -1], which is much less than the rate of...

    COMPASS is a fixed target experiment running with a 160 GeV muon beam at CERN's SPS accelerator. It is aimed at the study of the nucleon spin structure using a polarised muon beam and a polarised 6LiD target. In a second phase it will investigate charmed hadrons and hadrons with gluonic degrees...
