Description: ESME is a program developed at Fermilab for simulating both single particle and multi-particle dynamics in proton synchrotrons. The code has evolved incrementally for more than fifteen years, accumulating many useful features and some internal inconsistency in the process. In the latest revision (8.2), a significant effort has been made to eliminate inconsistency and ambiguity in the determination of phases for multiple RF systems. The use of frequency and phase curves is now more transparent. Other additions or improvements include additional features for time domain calculation, low noise distributions to extend multi-particle capability, run-time memory allocation and portable graphics. A Web page has been established to facilitate the distribution of the source code and documentation. Further information, bug reports and fixes will be made available through this resource.
