Muon Beam Ring Cooler Simulations Using COSY Infinity


In this paper we present simulations using COSY INFINITY to study the behavior of muon beams in a ring cooler designed by V. Balbekov[1]. Because of the substantial transversal emittance, the nonlinearities play a very important limiting role that must be understood and controlled well, which leads to the requirement of high order computation. We describe the system, the approaches for the simulations of the large aperture solenoids and magnetic sectors, and we show the nonlinear transfer maps as well as tracking simulations for different field models, and compare with other methods based on various approximations.
