The paper discusses the injection and extraction kicker requirements for the first
cooling ring in a muon storage ring neutrino factory, or muon collider. It is shown
that a kicker's current and single turn voltage are proportional to the normalized
emittance of the beam; and that the stored energy is proportional to the square of
that emittance. All three parameters are independent of the energy in the ring.

For a beam with $\epsilon_n=10~~\pi$ mm, as in several current designs, the kicker
energy and voltage are both far higher than in any conventional kicker. But a proposed
'induction kicker', powered by magnetic amplifiers similar to those in induction linacs,
might meet the requirements.
