Abstract

The dynamics of transverse particle oscillations in the Fermilab Tevatron, artificially made nonlinear, is studied by observing beam profiles over periods up to an hour. A diffusive model with amplitude-dependent diffusion coefficient gives a quantitatively accurate description of beam evolution. The evolution is influenced strongly by nonlinear resonance.
