This course is recommended as an essential preparation for those about to attend the CERN Accelerator School course in October at Loutraki but is also of interest to a much wider audience - indeed anyone with a technical or scientific background who would like to become familiar with the principles of accelerator design. No specialist knowledge of accelerator theory is needed but a passing familiarity with Maxwell's equations, matrix algebra and the solution of second order differential equations will be frequently exercised. The series of 10 talks span all aspects of circular machines and cover in a simple way the principles of focusing, betatron motion, dispersion, chromaticity, radio-frequency systems, phase stability and beam instabilities.
