  • Content Description: COMSYN is a numerical integration code which is written for the study and design of the compact synchrotrons. An improved 4th-order Runge-Kutta method is used in COMSYN to integrate the exact equations of motion in a rectangular coordinate system. The magnetic field components of the dipole B{sub x}, B{sub y} and B{sub z} can be obtained from either measurement or directly computed data (MAGNUS, TOSCA). A spline interpolation method is then used to get the field value at the particle position. For standard quadrupole and sextupole, the analytical expression is employed to compute its field distribution.
