  • Content Description: We discuss our progress on the self-consistent calculation of the 4D phase space density (PSD) and electromagnetic fields in a Vlasov-Maxwell formulation. We emphasize Coherent Synchrotron Radiation (CSR) from arbitrary curved planar orbits, with shielding from the vacuum chamber, but space charge forces are naturally included. Our focus on the Vlasov equation will provide simulations with lower numerical/statistical noise than standard PIC methods, and will allow the study of issues such as emittance degradation and microbunching due to space charge and CSR in bunch compressors. The fields excited by the bunch are computed in the lab frame from a new double integral formula. The field formula is derived from retarded potentials by changes of variables. It is singularity-free and requires no computation of retarded times. Ultimately, the Vlasov equation will be integrated in beam frame coordinates using our method of local characteristics. As an important intermediate step, we have developed a 'self consistent Monte Carlo algorithm', and a corresponding parallel code. This gives an accurate representation of the source and will help in understanding the PSD support. In addition we have (1) studied carefully a 2D phase space Vlasov analogue and (2) derived an improved expression of the field of a 1D charge/current distribution which accounts for the interference of different bends and other effects usually neglected. Bunch compressors will be emphasized.
