Abstract: The frequency analysis of the betatron motion is a valuable tool for the characterization of the linear and non-linear motion of a particle beam in a storage ring. In recent years, several experiments have shown that resonance driving terms can be successfully measured from the spectral decomposition of the turn-by-turn BPM data. The information on the driving terms can be used to correct unwanted resonances, to localize strong non-linear perturbations and provides a valuable tool for the construction of the non-linear model of the real accelerator. In this paper we introduce the theory, the computational tools and we give a review of the resonance driving terms experiments performed on different circular machines.
