Simulation and Optimization of the Tevatron Accelerator


The Tevatron accelerator, currently the particle accelerator with the highest energy in the world, consists of a ring with circumference of four miles in which protons are brought into collision with antiprotons at speeds very close to the speed of light. The accelerator currently under development at Fermilab represents a significant upgrade, but experienced significant limitations during initial operation. The correction of some of the problems that appeared using techniques of automatic differentiation are described. The skew quadrupole correction problems are addressed in more detail, and different schemes of correction are proposed.
