A plan for a publication network : for rapid dissemination of technical information by James H MacLachlan( Book )

4 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes an alternative to current information dissemination systems (letter journals), computerized information systems, and clearinghouse operations) that would establish a network of depositories at universities and research organizations. The essence of the approach is to provide convenient access to working papers and technical reports on a basis that could be self-supporting for the sponsoring institutions and remunerative for the authors. The paper describes the technical procedures of the plan and proposes a pilot project that would implement the plan on a small scale to a selected group of graduate schools of business. The proposal includes organizational considerations, dissemination networks, and financial analysis. It is hoped that the possibilities for the pilot implementation can be explored further. (Ch)

A proposed transition scheme for the longitudinal emittance control in the Fermilab Booster( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instead of applying the {gamma}{sub T} jump at the designed value of 1.0, which never can be used in the operation due to the quad steering, the combination of the rf manipulation and a 0.2-unit {gamma}{sub T} jump can reduce the longitudinal emittance growth nearly 40% during transition. Especially, a 0.2-unit {gamma}{sub T} jump can help in reducing the rf manipulating voltage from 1000 kV to 850 kV, and makes the transition scheme operationally feasible
