Comparison of Tracking Codes for the Determination of Dynamic Aperture in Storage Rings


Currently there is a great deal of activity towards making precision measurements utilizing storage rings, for example the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab [1], and the Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) program of the JEDI Collaboration [2]. These experiments are expected to perform measurements requiring sub-ppm precision. Of utmost importance in this regard is the capability of tracking codes to treat all nonlinear effects arising from the detailed field distributions present in the system, not the least of which are fringe fields.

In previous work [3,4], we performed parallel tests of various tracking codes in order to compare and contrast the results. In this study, we continue this line of research and extend the scope to dipoles with edge angles.
