Scattering in a Magnetic Field
David C. Carey
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

A scheme of stochastic cooling proposed at
Fermilab involves energy loss by passing the beam
through liquid hydrogen. Focussing is done by
solenoids. A particle travelling in a straight
line, will, after being scattered, follow a helical
trajectory. After a full circle is made, the
trajectory will be downstream at a point where
some of the previously unscattered will now
scatter. The portions of phase space occupied
in the two scatterings now overlap and will
occupy less space than if there were no overlap.
Results of detailed calculations and approximations
made will be discussed.
