Abstract : The combination of a bumpy torus field and a conventional betatron field leads to an interesting strongly-focused, high-current accelerator configuration. The question of orbital stability of a test particle in such a device is discussed and it is shown that the alternating gradient focusing in this accelerator can easily lead to greater than 20% bandwidth in allowed mismatch between the vertical magnetic field and the average beam particle energy.
