Description: Space-charge effects on beam stabilities are studied for the proposed two-ring high-intensity Fermilab booster destined for the muon collider. This includes microwave instabilities and rf potential-well distortions. For the first ring, ferrite insertion is suggested to cancel the space-charge distortion of the rf wave form. To control the inductance of the ferrite during ramping and to minimize resistive loss, perpendicular biasing to saturation is proposed.
