Optimization of accelerator parameters using normal form methods on highorder transfer maps
Abstract
Methods of analysis of the dynamics of ensembles of charged particles in collider rings are developed. The following problems are posed and solved using normal form transformations and other methods of perturbative nonlinear dynamics: (1) Optimization of the Tevatron dynamics: (a) Skew quadrupole correction of the dynamics of particles in the Tevatron in the presence of the systematic skew quadrupole errors in dipoles; (b) Calculation of the nonlinear tune shift with amplitude based on the results of measurements and the linear lattice information; (2) Optimization of the Muon Collider storage ring: (a) Computation and optimization of the dynamic aperture of the Muon Collider 50 x 50 GeV storage ring using higher order correctors; (b) 750 x 750 GeV Muon Collider storage ring lattice design matching the Tevatron footprint. The normal form coordinates have a very important advantage over the particle optical coordinates: if the transformation can be carried out successfully (general restrictions for that are not much stronger than the typical restrictions imposed on the behavior of the particles in the accelerator) then the motion in the new coordinates has a very clean representation allowing to extract more information about the dynamics of particles, and they are very convenient formore »

All the problem formulations include the derivation of the objective functions, which are later used in the optimization process using various optimization algorithms. Algorithms used to solve the problems are specific to collider rings, and applicable to similar problems arising on other machines of the same type. The details of the longterm behavior of the systems are studied to ensure the their stability for the desired number of turns. The algorithm of the normal form transformation is of great value for such problems as it gives much extra information about the disturbing factors. In addition to the fact that the dynamics of particles is represented in a way that is easy to understand, such important characteristics as the strengths of the resonances and the tune shifts with amplitude and various parameters of the system are calculated. Each major section is supplied with the results of applying various numerical optimization methods to the problems stated. The emphasis is made on the efficiency comparison of various approaches and methods. The main simulation tool is the arbitrary order code COSY INFINITY written by M. Berz, K. Makino, et al. at Michigan State University. Also, the code MAD is utilized to design the 750 x 750 GeV Muon Collider storage ring baseline lattice.},

The FockTani (unitary) transformation of the secondquantized Hamiltonian gives a representation which treats reactants and products symmetrically, and composites exactly. Each term in the FockTani potential corresponds to a specific physical process and contains terms orthogonalizing continuum states to the bound states. The difficulty in carrying out this transformation can be lessened by working in a center of mass system, giving (n  1) reduced mass particles. After a general analysis of such systems, the FockTani transformations in the 3 ..cap alpha.. 2body case are carried out for the reactions (1) a/sup +/ + (b/sup +/c/sup /) ..>.. (a/sup +/c/supmore »

A Measurement of the neutron electric form factor at very large momentum transfer using polaried electrions scattering from a polarized helium3 target
Knowledge of the electric and magnetic elastic form factors of the nucleon is essential for an understanding of nucleon structure. Of the form factors, the electric form factor of the neutron has been measured over the smallest range in Q ^{2} and with the lowest precision. Jefferson Lab experiment 02013 used a novel new polarized ^{3} He target to nearly double the range of momentum transfer in which the neutron form factor has been studied and to measure it with much higher precision. Polarized electrons were scattered off this target, and both the scattered electron and neutron were detected. Gmore » 
Interpretation of naturallanguage data base queries using optimization methods
The automatic interpretation of natural language (in this work, English), database questions formulated by a user untrained in the technical aspects of database querying is an established problem in the field of artificial intelligence. Stateoftheart approaches involve the analysis of queries with syntactic and semantic grammars expressed in phrase structure grammar or transition network formalisms. With such method difficulties exist with the detection and resolution of ambiguity, with the misinterpretation possibilities inherent with finite length lookahead, and with the modification and extension of a mechanism for other sources of semantic knowledge. This work examines the potential of optimization techniques tomore » 
Estimation of transient heattransfer coefficients in multidimensional problems by using inverseheattransfer methods
This dissertation is concerned with the analytical and experimental investigation of the inverseheattransfercoefficient problem for the estimation of transient heattransfer coefficients in multidimensional convective heattransfer applications. An application considered is the sudden quenching of a hot solid in a cold liquid. Other applications include thermal analysis of forced convection over impulsively started solid bodies and investigation of shortduration windtunnel experiments. The primary aim in the analytical part of the thesis is to describe methods and algorithms for the solution of the illposed inverseheattransfercoefficient problem. The solution method used is an extension of the sequential futureinformation method of Beck. The finitedifferencemore »
