Title: Optimization of accelerator parameters using normal form methods on high-order 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 » the purposes of visualization. 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 long-term 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.« less

  • The Fock-Tani (unitary) transformation of the second-quantized Hamiltonian gives a representation which treats reactants and products symmetrically, and composites exactly. Each term in the Fock-Tani 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 Fock-Tani transformations in the 3 ..cap alpha.. 2-body case are carried out for the reactions (1) a/sup +/ + (b/sup +/c/sup -/) ..-->.. (a/sup +/c/supmore » -/) + b/sup +/ and (2) a/sup -/ + (b/sup +/c/sup -/) ..-->.. (a/sup -/b/sup +/) + c/sup -/. It is found that for (2) the transformation in the symmetrical reduced mass system can easily be carried out, but the Jacobi reduced mass system requires the more complicated d-matrix approach. This transformation has not yet been attempted in the full 3-body system but is likely to be as difficult as that for (1). First order differential and total cross sections are computed for resonant change transfer in (1) for a proton-hydrogen initial state. The Fock-Tani T-matrix for the initial-state Jacobi system is found to be identical to that for the full 3-body system.« less
  • 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 02-013 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 » n E was measured to be 0.0242 ± 0.0020(stat) ± 0.0061(sys) and 0.0247 ± 0.0029(stat) ± 0.0031(sys) at Q 2 = 1.7 and 2.5 GeV 2 , respectively.« less
  • 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. State-of-the-art 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 look-ahead, and with the modification and extension of a mechanism for other sources of semantic knowledge. This work examines the potential of optimization techniques tomore » solve these problems and interpret natural language, database queries. The proposed method involves developing a 0-1 integer programming problem for each query. The possible values that the set of variables in the optimization may take on is an enumeration of possible such individual associations between the database schema and the query. The solution to the integer programming problem corresponds to a single assignment of database data items and relationships to the words in the query. Constraints are derived from systematic and database schema knowledge stored as libraries of templates. An objective function is used to rank the possible associations as to their likelihood of agreement with the intent of the questioner. A test mechanism was built to support evaluation of the proposed method. Suitable knowledge source template sets and an objective function were developed experimentally with the test mechanism from a learning sample of queries. Then the performance of the method was compared to that of an established system (PLANES) on a test set of queries. The performance of the new method was found to be comparable to that of the established system.« less
  • This dissertation is concerned with the analytical and experimental investigation of the inverse-heat-transfer-coefficient problem for the estimation of transient heat-transfer coefficients in multi-dimensional convective heat-transfer 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 short-duration wind-tunnel experiments. The primary aim in the analytical part of the thesis is to describe methods and algorithms for the solution of the ill-posed inverse-heat-transfer-coefficient problem. The solution method used is an extension of the sequential future-information method of Beck. The finite-differencemore » method, based on the control-volume approach, is used for the discretization of the direct heat-conduction problem. Numerical experiments are conducted for a systematic investigation of the developed algorithms on selected heat-transfer-coefficient test cases. The overall objective of the experimental work is to investigate the early transients in the heat-transfer coefficients from spheres in one- and two-dimensional quenching experiments.« less
