  Minimizing transverse emittance is essential in single- or few-passes accelerators designed to deliver high brightness electron beams. Emission of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) is an important factor of emittance degradation. We have demonstrated, with analytical and experimental results, that this perturbation may be cancelled by imposing certain conditions on the electron optics when the bunch length is constant along the line*. This scheme of CSR suppression is then enlarged, analytically and numerically, to cover the case of varying bunch length in a periodic arc compressor**. The proposed solution hold the promise of cost-saving of compact transfer lines with large bending angles, and new schemes for beam longitudinal gymnastics both in recirculating and in single-pass accelerators driving free electron lasers.
