Abstract. Application of moments method to study dynamics of muon cooling
system is presented. The muon cooling channel has specific features such as
damping due to ionization cooling, heating due to multiple scattering and energy
struggling. Our method (in a case of transverse motion) is correct in absence of
longitudinal magnetic fields such as solenoids.
It is well known that moments method is successfully used for calculation
of the dynamics in different focusing channels. However, the muon cooling
channel has some specific features: a) damping due to ionization cooling;
b) heating due to multiple Coulomb scattering and energy struggling. In
our paper  on "Kinetics of Muon Longitudinal Cooling" we considered an
evolution of longitudinal beam moments in a system with constant parameters.
In this paper we investigate a more general case: a cooling system, consisting
of a number of sections, each of which has constant parameters. Our method
(in a case of transverse motion) is correct in absence of longitudinal magnetic
field (e.g. solenoids).
