Beam Physics Seminar
Our understanding of the generation of coherent synchrotron
radiation in magnetic bending systems and its impact on beam
dynamics has grown considerably over the past few years.
The search for understanding has brought a number of surprises,
all related to the complexity of the fully self-consistent
problem. Herein I survey the associated phenomenology, theory,
and experiments while emphasizing important subtleties that
have recently been uncovered. I conclude by speculating on
courses of future investigations that may prove fruitful.
