RHIC Resistive Wall Coupled Bunch Instability [report]

2001 unpublished
The RHIC resistive wall coupled bunch instability is reviewed for gold and proton beams at the injection, top energy, and storage. The gold beam around the transition is also discussed. The strongest resistive wall coupled bunch instabilities are at the injection, for both gold and proton beams. With proper set-up of the machine chromaticity, however, most of these instabilities can be eliminated, or significantly reduced.
