Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to develop a self-consistent kinetic description of helically distorted relativistic electron beam equilibria for free electron laser applications. In particular, radially confined equilibria are considered for a helically distorted electron beam propagating in the combined transverse wiggler and uniform axial guide fields.
