The plans now being developed for magnetic resonance accelerators, here called the bevatron which are to produce protons of energies up to 10 Bev represent the latest stage in the quest for high energy particles. The feasibility of obtaining such powerful tools for investigating the fundamental properties of matter has been established since the end of the war, thanks to the discovery of the so called synchrotron principle and its successful application to smaller machines. In this article we shall first discuss the principles from which the bevatron is to be constructed and trace a cycle of operation of an ideal machine in some detail, and then go into the question of whether a real machine can be constructed which will approximate the ideal case closely enough.
