The resulting high-order maps can be utilized for a variety of applications, including long-term spin-orbit tracking under preservation of the symplectic-orthonormal structure and the associated determination of depolarization rates. Using normal form methods, it is also possible to determine spin-orbit invariants of the motion, in particular the nonlinear invariant axis as well as the associated spin-orbit tune shifts.
The methods are implemented in the code COSY INFINITY and available for spin-orbit computations for general accelerator lattices, including conventional particle optical elements including their fringe fields, as well as user specified field arrangements.
