- This report summarizes the study of various longitudinal problems pertaining to the transition-energy crossing in the proposed Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Scaling laws are provided for the effects of chromatic non-linearity, self-field mismatch, and microwave instability. It is indicated that the beam loss and bunch-area growth are mainly caused by the chromatic non-linear effort, which is enhanced by the space-charge force near transition. Computer simulation using the program. TIBETAN shows that a ``γT-jump`` of about 0.8 unit within a time period of 60 ms is adequate to achieve a ``clean`` crossing, provided that the remnant voltage of the 160 MHz rf system is less than 10 kV.
