Using the strong focusing theory for the phaseenergy space, it is possible to find the space-charge limit of an Alvarez linac or to find the appropriate combination of the synchronous phases for an alternating-phase-focusing (APF) linac. In a linac design, it is common to use the integral form to compute the transverse dynamics. This report will show that the use of the differential form and of the periodicity condition gives the space-charge term and the appropriate combination of the
