The problems of beam transfer from the booster to the main ring of the cascade synchrotron may be divided into two classes. The first consists of problems connected with the physical transfer of the beam from the booster ring to the main ring. These problems are: (a) ejection from the booster ring without deterioration of the optical quality of the beam, (b) transport of the beam to the main ring including lenses for matching the region of phase space occupied by the beam to the region appropriate for the main ring, and (c) injection into the main ring.

The general ejection scheme described in this report follows closely the corresponding methods proposed by O'Neill for filling storage rings, and by Kuiper and Plass for fast extraction of the beam from the CERN proton synchrotron. Further contributions have been made by E. D. Courant, H. S. Snyder, M. Sands, and A. V. Tollestrup.
