I assumed that this would increase complexity, since more magnets are needed
since the particles want to move in a straight line instead of as circle.
Besides this minor problem, I don't think that a torroidal accelerator could
accelerate particles continuously but only in small shots. This is because
it only can accelerate a localize group of particle moving at one speed.
Thus a whole bunch of particle moving at speeds ranging from 1/1000 c to
1/10 c would be a major problem, because they all would move along each
other (or worse collide inside the torroid).

I was already looking around for more info about anti-matter.

I think that is not allowed to be written...
