Paper Abstract

The physical mechanisms that contribute to harmonic radiation in free-electron laser systems are examined. Mathematical models for the spontaneous and coherent-spontaneous emission in plane-polarized wigglers are given. How these models are used to perform numerical simulations is discussed. Modifications of the models to incorporate non-ideal free-electron laser effects are reviewed.
