This paper presents investigation of the proposed use of round beams for increasing the luminosity in colliders. The main idea of round beams is briefly discussed. Numerical simulations of round colliding beams for the Tevatron are much in favor of round beams, because they provide reduction of harmful impact of beam-beam forces on beam sizes, particles diffusion and better stability with respect to errors and imperfections.
