Ionization cooling is the best-known beam cooling mechanism for
the envisioned muon colliders and neutrino factories. Although the
basic mechanism of ionization cooling is very similar to the
well-established radiation damping of electron beam in storage
rings, many challenges in beam physics as well as accelerator
engineering have to be met in order to design and implement an
ionization cooling channel. In this paper we describe the beam
physics aspect of ionization cooling and review our current
understanding of linear beam dynamics, especially the various
heating mechanisms involved in the cooling process. Our focus is
on the linear theory of 6D ionization cooling in solenoidal
channels. Status of cooling channel developments is briefly
addressed. This paper is intended to be readable for
