Abstract : Analytical and computer simulation results are reported on the effect of the external field index fluctuations on the dynamics of a high current electron ring in a modified betatron. These non-linear studies clearly demonstrate that the external field index fluctuations are, in general, harmless to the high current ring. In addition, it was found that a small (1%) temperature spread parallel to the direction of propagation excites oscillations in the rms emittance, but the amplitude of these oscillations is substantially lower than in a conventional betatron.
