Description: We present the results of a new beam-beam simulation program that allows for a self-consistent calculation of the electromagnetic fields of the beams by treating general (non-Gaussian) beam- distributions. We find that a new class of coherent instabilities, appearing at certain operating points, dominate the dynamics. 9 refs., 3 figs.
