LILA: the Long Island Lattice Analogue

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

LILA is a BNL adventure to create a particle orbit and tracking program ensemble for large storage ring accelerator design and also controls operation. The accelerator physics parts are based largely on the PATRICIA program of H. Weidemann, as enhanced by S. Kheifets in a later version with multipole effects. We have emphasized the data base aspects of the tracking problem, as modern storage rings contain thousands of distinct lattice items, each with perhaps up to fifty parameters of its own. We have also introduced the general and flexible program structures long familiar to high energy physics event analysis, by ... continued below

Description

LILA is a BNL adventure to create a particle orbit and tracking program ensemble for large storage ring accelerator design and also controls operation. The accelerator physics parts are based largely on the PATRICIA program of H. Weidemann, as enhanced by S. Kheifets in a later version with multipole effects. We have emphasized the data base aspects of the tracking problem, as modern storage rings contain thousands of distinct lattice items, each with perhaps up to fifty parameters of its own. We have also introduced the general and flexible program structures long familiar to high energy physics event analysis, by which an event is reconstructed in steps from points into lines, projections into tracks, tracks to vertices and the like. Thus, LILA is a modern amalgam of the original PATRICIA, a relational data base and memory management mechanism, and a number of enhancements for treating nonlinear forces.
