*JSPEC Development<br />
Tested the codes that calculates the electron charge density inside an arbitrary electron bunch. The electron bunch is represented by two million particles, which are generated randomly with Gaussian distribution. The electron are loaded into memory and then distributed into a tree structure of boxes. The maximum number of electrons in each childless box is adjustable. This process only needs to be performed once as long as the electron charge distribution is assumed unchanged during the cooling process. The ions are put into a regular grid and the grid density is adjustable. (A regular grid is used only for testing purpose. In real simulation, ions can have any distribution.) Ions are distributed into the boxes and the charge density around the ion is calculated by the electron number inside the box divided by the box volume. Electron density is plotted for a few different grid sizes and the results show the algorithm works as expected. Numerical noises are noticed in the electron density calculation, which is as expected, and the noises reduce as the grid size becomes smaller. Now it is still not clear how much it will affect the cooling rate calculation. It will be tested later.<br />
<br />
I am working on fitting the above electron density calculation code into JSPEC for cooling simulations. It needs more changes in the code than I originally expected. A new model of the electron beam has been added. But several interfaces between several modules have to be revised, because in this model the relative electron speed and temperature can change. The UI needs to be updated, too. This work is still in process.<br />

'''Diagnostic Development - K. Jordan'''<br><br />
Kevin Jordan<br />
*Continued efforts on the testing of LCLS-II cryomodules in the LERF. The cable termination should begin this week - effort has suffered due to lack of man power & priority during the SAD.I continue to inventory parts for mechanical assembly of bridging components & end cans.<br />
*I have been working with Steve Shuring & Jonathan Creel to ensure the LERF transfer line, 1/4 & full cryomodule get cleaned up & cooled down in the next couple weeks when the CHL is reconfigured for operations. The heaters & waveguide needed to be reconfigured from F100 to C20 style cryomodule.<br />
*Joined Joe on trip to RadiaBeam, this was a preliminary design review of the SBIR-II high speed, high power wire scanner<br />
<br><br />
Joe Gubeli<br />
*Worked on a new SLM diagnostic for ARC 7. The layout is nearly complete and am waiting on a few specifications from Mike T to finish the design.<br />
*Had a progress meeting with Radiabeam on the high power, high speed wire scanner. The meeting was very productive. The design is fairly mature with some modifications requested. A timeline and installation location for the various tests were discussed as well.<br />
<br><br />
Michael Tiefenback<br />
*More followup on magnet integrator tasks, particularly concerning mis-wired quadrupoles. (Two more were found.) We have to be able to _know_ that we're done on this.<br />
*continuing assessment (with operator Brandi Cade) of cryogenic heat load calibration vs. JT setting to characterize the linac heat load. The benefit will be to guide a better match of RF heat (Q0 dissipation) against resistive heat so that RF state transitions are more transparent to CHL operation. Still looks promising.<br />
*Continuing on requirements for diagnostic optimization for SLMs in Arc7A and elsewhere. Still investigating resolution issues with Gubeli and hardware.<br />
*Preparation for CLAS12 accelerator update talk 10 July.<br />

*JSPEC Development<br />
Tested the codes that calculates the electron charge density inside an arbitrary electron bunch. The electron bunch is represented by two million particles, which are generated randomly with Gaussian distribution. The electron are loaded into memory and then distributed into a tree structure of boxes. The maximum number of electrons in each childless box is adjustable. This process only needs to be performed once as long as the electron charge distribution is assumed unchanged during the cooling process. The ions are put into a regular grid and the grid density is adjustable. (A regular grid is used only for testing purpose. In real simulation, ions can have any distribution.) Ions are distributed into the boxes and the charge density around the ion is calculated by the electron number inside the box divided by the box volume. Electron density is plotted for a few different grid sizes and the results show the algorithm works as expected. Numerical noises are noticed in the electron density calculation, which is as expected, and the noises reduce as the grid size becomes smaller. Now it is still not clear how much it will affect the cooling rate calculation. It will be tested later.<br />
<br />
I am working on fitting the above electron density calculation code into JSPEC for cooling simulations. It needs more changes in the code than I originally expected. A new model of the electron beam has been added. But several interfaces between several modules have to be revised, because in this model the relative electron speed and temperature can change. The UI needs to be updated, too. This work is still in process.<br />

*JSPEC Development<br />
Tested the codes that calculates the electron charge density inside an arbitrary electron bunch. The electron bunch is represented by two million particles, which are generated randomly with Gaussian distribution. The electron are loaded into memory and then distributed into a tree structure of boxes. The maximum number of electrons in each childless box is adjustable. This process only needs to be performed once as long as the electron charge distribution is assumed unchanged during the cooling process. The ions are put into a regular grid and the grid density is adjustable. (A regular grid is used only for testing purpose. In real simulation, ions can have any distribution.) Ions are distributed into the boxes and the charge density around the ion is calculated by the electron number inside the box divided by the box volume. Electron density is plotted for a few different grid sizes and the results show the algorithm works as expected. Numerical noises are noticed in the electron density calculation, which is as expected, and the noises reduce as the grid size becomes smaller. Now it is still not clear how much it will affect the cooling rate calculation. It will be tested later.<br />
<br />
I am working on fitting the above electron density calculation code into JSPEC for cooling simulations. It needs more changes in the code than I originally expected. A new model of the electron beam has been added. But several interfaces between several modules have to be revised, because in this model the relative electron speed and temperature can change. The UI needs to be updated, too. This work is still in process.<br />

*JSPEC Development<br />
Cooling with an arbitrary electron bunch. For this purpose, we allow the users to represent the electron bunch as a list of particles with given positions and velocities. We will calculate the electron density, average velocity and temperature around each ion, which will be used for the friction force calculation for the ion. Finding all the electrons around a given ion and sequencing them in 3D space will be very time consuming. To achieve better efficiency, we will use the following algorithm. (1) Enclose all the electron in a cube and divide the cube into small cubes hierarchically until the number of electrons in each cube is smaller than a pre-determined number. The cubes form a tree structure. This is exactly what we do in the fast multipole method. (2) Then for each box find which ions are contained. (3) Finally we can calculate the electron density and other parameters needed for the friction force calculation for each ion according to the electrons inside the same box. Codes for step (1) and (2) are finished. <br><br><br />
Turn-by-turn tracking. I am adding the turn-by-turn tracking package to the official JSPEC release. Transverse tracking was done by a linear phase advance according to the given tunes. Longitudinal tracking was done either by a tune or by a RF cavity. The package has been exposed to the UI. But need more testing. <br><br><br />
A bug of the user interface (the transverse coupling was not correctly set for IBS) was found and fixed. <br />
*Fast Multipole Method <br />
The Cartesian tensor and differential algebra (DA) based kernel-independent FMM code was revised so that the code can treat multiple kernel functions simultaneously. The 3D single level Stokes kernel, which is composed of three kernel functions, was calculated and the code works as expected. <br />
<br><br><br />
Two versions of the error function that takes a DA vector as an input and returns another DA vector were developed. One version calls the C++ math function to calculate the constant part of the return DA vector and use theoretical formula to calculate the higher order parts of the return DA vector. The other version use Chebyshev polynomial with DA to calculate the return DA vector. They will be used to demonstrate how DA can be used to calculate special functions. <br><br />
*Others<br />
*:-Tested the C++ code for constructing the 2nd kind generating function using differential algebra on various orders and dimensions. The code was sent to Balsa and Vasiliy. <br />
*:-Reviewed a paper for SIVP. <br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report<br />
*:-Test, finish, and document the JSPEC package of cooling with arbitrary electron beam<br />
*:-Test the turn-by-turn tracking packge for JSPEC.<br />

'''Diagnostic Development - K. Jordan''' <br><br />
Kevin Jordan<br />
*I have been working with the PC to choose talks for the upcoming IBIC conference that will be in Shanghai this September<br />
*Work continues on the LCLS-II CM test conversion of the LERF, most all of the cables have been pulled - they still need to be terminated. The first set of 8 SSAs and LLRF racks have been run together and at full power (into waveguide shorts).<br />
*The past few weeks have been spent cleaning up the entire LERF for a DOE Isotope visit - that visit went very well<br />
*Trip to Columbus OH to Eden Cryo vender for inspection of the LCLS-II transfer line and cryogenic-can, both of these are being delivered late - we are trying to pick up the schedule<br />
Next two weeks;<br />
*RadiaBeam visit for design review<br />
*Run the next 8 SSAs & LLRF racks<br />
*Get three cables terminated<br />
*Dayne from SLAC will arrive in a couple weeks to commission the Cryogenic control racks<br />
<br><br />
Joe Gubeli:<br />
*Worked on the new SLMs for ARC 7. I have a good optical solution and the chamber is well defined lacking only some support structures. Setup the optics for this SLM on the bench and am working with Michael T. to determine specifications like slits and remote/local adjustment capabilities. Ordered and received several cameras that Mike T. and I will setup to determine the best for future diagnostics. <br />
*Worked a little on LCLS-II as well as on the Radiabeam CRADA. We have received the test linear motor and controller for the HPWS insertion. I will talk to Wes M. about it control with EPICS. <br />
*Helped I&C with the Hall C dump. While the setup there is not optimal due to transport and lens sizes the user is satisfied with the image.<br />
*Going forward I expect I will continue working on the ARC 7 SLM, Radiabeam, the isotope project and the paper for IBIC 2018.<br />
<br><br />
Mike Tiefenback:<br />
*requirements for diagnostic optimization for SLMs in Arc7A and elsewhere, including the 1C12 outlook for fall 2018. We expect to acquire a few cameras each of 2 or 3 styles we use on-site and set them up looking at the same image to test for camera-to-camera variance in measured RMS image size. Have just begun investigating resolution issues with Gubeli and hardware.<br />
*I've had to devote time to magnet integrator tasks, particularly to the prospect of residual mis-wired quadrupoles.<br />
*Have begun (with operator Brandi Cade) cryogenic heat load calibration vs. JT setting to characterize the linac heat load. The benefit will be to guide a better match of RF heat (Q0 dissipation) against resistive heat so that RF state transitions are more transparent to CHL operation. Looks promising so far.<br />
*Investigating X-ray imaging in the transport arcs to Halls A/C (a step beyond visible light optical imaging in these lines, as a route to a real-time energy spread monitor).<br />

*JSPEC Development<br />
Cooling with an arbitrary electron bunch. For this purpose, we allow the users to represent the electron bunch as a list of particles with given positions and velocities. We will calculate the electron density, average velocity and temperature around each ion, which will be used for the friction force calculation for the ion. Finding all the electrons around a given ion and sequencing them in 3D space will be very time consuming. To achieve better efficiency, we will use the following algorithm. (1) Enclose all the electron in a cube and divide the cube into small cubes hierarchically until the number of electrons in each cube is smaller than a pre-determined number. The cubes form a tree structure. This is exactly what we do in the fast multipole method. (2) Then for each box find which ions are contained. (3) Finally we can calculate the electron density and other parameters needed for the friction force calculation for each ion according to the electrons inside the same box. Codes for step (1) and (2) are finished. <br><br><br />
Turn-by-turn tracking. I am adding the turn-by-turn tracking package to the official JSPEC release. Transverse tracking was done by a linear phase advance according to the given tunes. Longitudinal tracking was done either by a tune or by a RF cavity. The package has been exposed to the UI. But need more testing. <br><br><br />
A bug of the user interface (the transverse coupling was not correctly set for IBS) was found and fixed. <br />
*Fast Multipole Method <br />
The Cartesian tensor and differential algebra (DA) based kernel-independent FMM code was revised so that the code can treat multiple kernel functions simultaneously. The 3D single level Stokes kernel, which is composed of three kernel functions, was calculated and the code works as expected. <br />
<br><br><br />
Two versions of the error function that takes a DA vector as an input and returns another DA vector were developed. One version calls the C++ math function to calculate the constant part of the return DA vector and use theoretical formula to calculate the higher order parts of the return DA vector. The other version use Chebyshev polynomial with DA to calculate the return DA vector. They will be used to demonstrate how DA can be used to calculate special functions. <br><br />
*Others<br />
*:-Tested the C++ code for constructing the 2nd kind generating function using differential algebra on various orders and dimensions. The code was sent to Balsa and Vasiliy. <br />
*:-Reviewed a paper for SIVP. <br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report<br />
*:-Test, finish, and document the JSPEC package of cooling with arbitrary electron beam<br />
*:-Test the turn-by-turn tracking packge for JSPEC.<br />

Yves Roblin:<br />
*CEBAF:<br />
*:-TOSCA versus ELEGANT. writing a note on how to go from one to the other.<br />
*:-2R investigation: Working with J. Benesch to generate the higher order multipoles for all dipoles in the machine using TOSCA models. The idea is to incorporate that into the ELEGANT model. As a first step, I used TOSCA to calculate the same quantity that the 12GeV magnet team used (B'L/BL) and compared with actual measurements provided by K. Bagget. The agreement is good so we are proceeding with using TOSCA to specify the other multipoles (up to decapole). preliminary tracking with multipoles in the S/R magnets qualitatively reproduce features that are commonly seen in the FOPT's.<br />
*:-Worked with M. Tiefenback on optimizing ELEGANT command files for the simulation and use of synchrotron light monitors. Found a few oddities in ELEGANT, working to resolve it.<br />
*:-Met with Thia Keppel, Arne F., D. HigginBotham, M. Tiefenback to find a way to run an Hall A experiment which requires only a few hours of beam at less than 1GeV. We are thinking of running with SL off and also using that opportunity to cross-calibrate ARC1,ARC2 and the hall dipoles strings (1C and 3C). Arne has set aside time the first 2 weeks of August to do the setup in tune mode in order to prepare for the actual experiment (sometimes in november).<br />
*:-Working on transitioning leadership of BTEAM from Todd Satogata to myself. Preparing mid and long term goals up to late 2019. Some of the coming challenges are: several energy changes this year, hyper nuclear end of year requiring low energy spread, next year we will have to deliver parity quality beam at 1 pass while running at 5 pass in other halls. Discussions about this have started. All of this is within the context of a push for model and CED improvements.<br />
*JLEIC:<br />
*:-preparing for the FOA work. First quarter is to implement a higher order tracking in beambeam3d. This will reuse what we already did for GHOST, including the recent work He Zhang has been doing.<br />
*:-continuing pCDR work.<br />
*:-Help C. Tennant to configure his CSR distribution smoothing script on the qcd farm. (on Ops, he could only process 1 million particles, he needs to process in the tens of millions)<br />
*OTHER:<br />
*:-sick leave 6/7, leave 6/8<br />
<br><br />
He Zhang:<br />
*Fast multipole method<br />
*:-Used the single level FMM code to solve Yukawa potential problem. The code works as expected. One only needs to revise the kernel function and do not need to change anything else. Then I read a few materials to understand how the Stokes kernel works and I am trying to solve the problem using the FMM code. It looks straightforward, but we need to calculate three kernel functions. Although we can do it one by one, but the proper way is to calculate them all together for better efficiency. Needs some coding to make it happen. <br />
*:-pCDR writing<br />
*:-Did simulations for the low energy DC cooling in the booster and wrote the draft for this section. Polishing the other sections. One more section left: Optimization of the electron cooling efficiency. <br />
*Beam-beam code development<br />
*:-Revise the COSY Script file so that Vasiliy and Balsa can generate high order maps and differential equations from the generating function. Vasiliy suggests finally they want to use MADX to generate the map. But it is not clear how to construct the generating function and the differential equations in MADX. So I wrote c++ code to construct the generating function from the truncated map. The procedure includes (1) read the truncated map from a input file; (2) convert the map into a differential algebra (DA) vector; (3) construct the 2nd kind of generation function (DA vector); (4) construct the differential equations (DA vectors); and (5) convert the differential equations into the “map” data type. Step (3) and (4) include many DA operations, so the TPSA code I wrote previously is used. The code is almost done. Tested with a 4D map, it generates exactly the same generating function with COSY. For the specific 6D map for JLEIC p ring, the generating function of this new code has an extra term “010010” when compared with the one by COSY. The coefficient is at least eight orders smaller than those of other terms. So it may be a numerical phenomena and does not affect the symplectic tracking. This needs to be checked. I will test a few cases before I delivery the code.<br />
*:-As a byproduct, a deeply hidden bug in the TPSA package is founded and fixed. Some new functions are added, such as take derivative of DA vector w.r.t. a base, integrate a DA vector w.r.t. a base, calculate the inverse map of a given DA map. The updates has been pushed to github.<br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report<br />
*:-Some coding for the kernel-independent FMM<br />
*:-Dust particle transport<br />
*:-Understand the dispersive cooling theory<br />

Yves Roblin:<br />
*CEBAF:<br />
*:-TOSCA versus ELEGANT. writing a note on how to go from one to the other.<br />
*:-2R investigation: Working with J. Benesch to generate the higher order multipoles for all dipoles in the machine using TOSCA models. The idea is to incorporate that into the ELEGANT model. As a first step, I used TOSCA to calculate the same quantity that the 12GeV magnet team used (B'L/BL) and compared with actual measurements provided by K. Bagget. The agreement is good so we are proceeding with using TOSCA to specify the other multipoles (up to decapole). preliminary tracking with multipoles in the S/R magnets qualitatively reproduce features that are commonly seen in the FOPT's.<br />
*:-Worked with M. Tiefenback on optimizing ELEGANT command files for the simulation and use of synchrotron light monitors. Found a few oddities in ELEGANT, working to resolve it.<br />
*:-Met with Thia Keppel, Arne F., D. HigginBotham, M. Tiefenback to find a way to run an Hall A experiment which requires only a few hours of beam at less than 1GeV. We are thinking of running with SL off and also using that opportunity to cross-calibrate ARC1,ARC2 and the hall dipoles strings (1C and 3C). Arne has set aside time the first 2 weeks of August to do the setup in tune mode in order to prepare for the actual experiment (sometimes in november).<br />
*:-Working on transitioning leadership of BTEAM from Todd Satogata to myself. Preparing mid and long term goals up to late 2019. Some of the coming challenges are: several energy changes this year, hyper nuclear end of year requiring low energy spread, next year we will have to deliver parity quality beam at 1 pass while running at 5 pass in other halls. Discussions about this have started. All of this is within the context of a push for model and CED improvements.<br />
*JLEIC:<br />
*:-preparing for the FOA work. First quarter is to implement a higher order tracking in beambeam3d. This will reuse what we already did for GHOST, including the recent work He Zhang has been doing.<br />
*:-continuing pCDR work.<br />
*:-Help C. Tennant to configure his CSR distribution smoothing script on the qcd farm. (on Ops, he could only process 1 million particles, he needs to process in the tens of millions)<br />
*OTHER:<br />
*:-sick leave 6/7, leave 6/8<br />
<br><br />
He Zhang:<br />
*Fast multipole method<br />
*:-Used the single level FMM code to solve Yukawa potential problem. The code works as expected. One only needs to revise the kernel function and do not need to change anything else. Then I read a few materials to understand how the Stokes kernel works and I am trying to solve the problem using the FMM code. It looks straightforward, but we need to calculate three kernel functions. Although we can do it one by one, but the proper way is to calculate them all together for better efficiency. Needs some coding to make it happen. <br />
*:-pCDR writing<br />
*:-Did simulations for the low energy DC cooling in the booster and wrote the draft for this section. Polishing the other sections. One more section left: Optimization of the electron cooling efficiency. <br />
*Beam-beam code development<br />
*:-Revise the COSY Script file so that Vasiliy and Balsa can generate high order maps and differential equations from the generating function. Vasiliy suggests finally they want to use MADX to generate the map. But it is not clear how to construct the generating function and the differential equations in MADX. So I wrote c++ code to construct the generating function from the truncated map. The procedure includes (1) read the truncated map from a input file; (2) convert the map into a differential algebra (DA) vector; (3) construct the 2nd kind of generation function (DA vector); (4) construct the differential equations (DA vectors); and (5) convert the differential equations into the “map” data type. Step (3) and (4) include many DA operations, so the TPSA code I wrote previously is used. The code is almost done. Tested with a 4D map, it generates exactly the same generating function with COSY. For the specific 6D map for JLEIC p ring, the generating function of this new code has an extra term “010010” when compared with the one by COSY. The coefficient is at least eight orders smaller than those of other terms. So it may be a numerical phenomena and does not affect the symplectic tracking. This needs to be checked. I will test a few cases before I delivery the code.<br />
*:-As a byproduct, a deeply hidden bug in the TPSA package is founded and fixed. Some new functions are added, such as take derivative of DA vector w.r.t. a base, integrate a DA vector w.r.t. a base, calculate the inverse map of a given DA map. The updates has been pushed to github.<br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report<br />
*:-Some coding for the kernel-independent FMM<br />
*:-Dust particle transport<br />
*:-Understand the dispersive cooling theory<br />

*:-TOSCA versus ELEGANT. writing a note on how to go from one to the other.<br />
*:-2R investigation: Working with J. Benesch to generate the higher order multipoles for all dipoles in the machine using TOSCA models. The idea is to incorporate that into the ELEGANT model. As a first step, I used TOSCA to calculate the same quantity that the 12GeV magnet team used (B'L/BL) and compared with actual measurements provided by K. Bagget. The agreement is good so we are proceeding with using TOSCA to specify the other multipoles (up to decapole). preliminary tracking with multipoles in the S/R magnets qualitatively reproduce features that are commonly seen in the FOPT's.<br />
*:-Worked with M. Tiefenback on optimizing ELEGANT command files for the simulation and use of synchrotron light monitors. Found a few oddities in ELEGANT, working to resolve it.<br />
*:-Met with Thia Keppel, Arne F., D. HigginBotham, M. Tiefenback to find a way to run an Hall A experiment which requires only a few hours of beam at less than 1GeV. We are thinking of running with SL off and also using that opportunity to cross-calibrate ARC1,ARC2 and the hall dipoles strings (1C and 3C). Arne has set aside time the first 2 weeks of August to do the setup in tune mode in order to prepare for the actual experiment (sometimes in november).<br />
*:-Working on transitioning leadership of BTEAM from Todd Satogata to myself. Preparing mid and long term goals up to late 2019. Some of the coming challenges are: several energy changes this year, hyper nuclear end of year requiring low energy spread, next year we will have to deliver parity quality beam at 1 pass while running at 5 pass in other halls. Discussions about this have started. All of this is within the context of a push for model and CED improvements.<br />
*JLEIC:<br />
*:-preparing for the FOA work. First quarter is to implement a higher order tracking in beambeam3d. This will reuse what we already did for GHOST, including the recent work He Zhang has been doing.<br />
*:-continuing pCDR work.<br />
*:-Help C. Tennant to configure his CSR distribution smoothing script on the qcd farm. (on Ops, he could only process 1 million particles, he needs to process in the tens of millions)<br />
*OTHER:<br />
*:-sick leave 6/7, leave 6/8<br />
<br><br />
He Zhang:<br />
*Fast multipole method<br />
*:-Used the single level FMM code to solve Yukawa potential problem. The code works as expected. One only needs to revise the kernel function and do not need to change anything else. Then I read a few materials to understand how the Stokes kernel works and I am trying to solve the problem using the FMM code. It looks straightforward, but we need to calculate three kernel functions. Although we can do it one by one, but the proper way is to calculate them all together for better efficiency. Needs some coding to make it happen. <br />
*:-pCDR writing<br />
*:-Did simulations for the low energy DC cooling in the booster and wrote the draft for this section. Polishing the other sections. One more section left: Optimization of the electron cooling efficiency. <br />
*Beam-beam code development<br />
*:-Revise the COSY Script file so that Vasiliy and Balsa can generate high order maps and differential equations from the generating function. Vasiliy suggests finally they want to use MADX to generate the map. But it is not clear how to construct the generating function and the differential equations in MADX. So I wrote c++ code to construct the generating function from the truncated map. The procedure includes (1) read the truncated map from a input file; (2) convert the map into a differential algebra (DA) vector; (3) construct the 2nd kind of generation function (DA vector); (4) construct the differential equations (DA vectors); and (5) convert the differential equations into the “map” data type. Step (3) and (4) include many DA operations, so the TPSA code I wrote previously is used. The code is almost done. Tested with a 4D map, it generates exactly the same generating function with COSY. For the specific 6D map for JLEIC p ring, the generating function of this new code has an extra term “010010” when compared with the one by COSY. The coefficient is at least eight orders smaller than those of other terms. So it may be a numerical phenomena and does not affect the symplectic tracking. This needs to be checked. I will test a few cases before I delivery the code.<br />
*:-As a byproduct, a deeply hidden bug in the TPSA package is founded and fixed. Some new functions are added, such as take derivative of DA vector w.r.t. a base, integrate a DA vector w.r.t. a base, calculate the inverse map of a given DA map. The updates has been pushed to github.<br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report<br />
*:-Some coding for the kernel-independent FMM<br />
*:-Dust particle transport<br />
*:-Understand the dispersive cooling theory<br />

*Fast multipole method. The paper on Traceless Cartesian Tensor FMM for Coulomb Kernel was finally accepted. Now the paper is in pressing. An online version is available here:<br />
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0021999118303280?via%3Dihub<br />
A parser was added to the kernel-independent FMM code. Now the code can read a kernel from a text file and perform the calculation without recompiling. Computation time is slightly increased but acceptable.<br />
*I started to write the paper on the kernel-independent FMM based on the Cartesian tensor and Differential Algebra. Some data was generated. However, I noticed that the efficiency is not as good as expected, although DA package has been revised for better performance. After profiling the program again, it is identified the bottle neck is the Multipole-to-Particle (M2P) operator and the Particle-to-Local (P2L) operator for ill-separated boxes. Usually the dominating operator is Multiple-to-Local (P2L). But in this case, the M2P and P2L operators includes many DA calculation for high order derivatives of the kernel function and the DA calculation is time consuming, these two operators cost much more time than the M2P operator. Possible solutions are (1) use single level FMM, which does not need M2P and P2L operators, instead of multi-level FMM; (2) use some DA approximation around the box center for the high order gradient calculation; and (3) further improve DA efficiency. To test solution (1), I revised the FMM framework so that a full tree of boxes for a given level can be generated. For a uniform distribution, a single level FMM is about 20 times faster than a multi-level FMM. This confirms that the computation bottle neck is due to the M2P and P2L operator. But the efficiency of a single-level FMM reduces very fast when the particle distribution deviates from the uniform distribution. Solution (2) will bring new errors. It will need testing to see how much the error will be increased and how much the efficiency can be improved. As to solution (3), the DA calculation efficiency can be improved by faster indexing of the DA element. But I think what we can gain is limited.<br />
*To demonstrate the kernel-independent property, we should present the calculation results for various kernels. For 2D solutions of the modified Laplace equation, the modified Stokes equation, and the modified Navier equation, one needs to calculate the first and the second kind modified Bessel functions K0 and K1. The current DA package cannot do this calculation. After some investigation, I found K0 and K1 can be calculated by the rational approximation method (Pavel Holoborodko), which is implemented in the boost library. The method should be adaptive to DA calculations.<br />
pCDR writing<br />
*A draft including the following topics has been finished: Multi-Stage Cooling Scheme, Simulation Program (JSEPC) Development, DC Cooling in the Collider, Bunched Beam Cooling in the Collider Ring. The following two sections will be added soon: DC Cooling in the Booster Ring (Needs some simulations for this topic.), Optimization of the electron cooling efficiency.<br />

But in this case, the M2P and P2L operators includes many DA calculation for high order derivatives of the kernel function and the DA calculation is time consuming, these two operators cost much more time than the M2P operator. Possible solutions are (1) use single level FMM, which does not need M2P and P2L operators, instead of multi-level FMM; (2) use some DA approximation around the box center for the high order gradient calculation; and (3) further improve DA efficiency. To test solution (1), I revised the FMM framework so that a full tree of boxes for a given level can be generated. For a uniform distribution, a single level FMM is about 20 times faster than a multi-level FMM. This confirms that the computation bottle neck is due to the M2P and P2L operator. But the efficiency of a single-level FMM reduces very fast when the particle distribution deviates from the uniform distribution. Solution (2) will bring new errors. It will need testing to see how much the error will be increased and how much the efficiency can be improved. As to solution (3), the DA calculation efficiency can be improved by faster indexing of the DA element. But I think what we can gain is limited.<br />
*To demonstrate the kernel-independent property, we should present the calculation results for various kernels. For 2D solutions of the modified Laplace equation, the modified Stokes equation, and the modified Navier equation, one needs to calculate the first and the second kind modified Bessel functions K0 and K1. The current DA package cannot do this calculation. After some investigation, I found K0 and K1 can be calculated by the rational approximation method (Pavel Holoborodko), which is implemented in the boost library. The method should be adaptive to DA calculations.<br />

*Fast multipole method. The paper on Traceless Cartesian Tensor FMM for Coulomb Kernel was finally accepted. Now the paper is in pressing. An online version is available here:<br />
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0021999118303280?via%3Dihub<br />
A parser was added to the kernel-independent FMM code. Now the code can read a kernel from a text file and perform the calculation without recompiling. Computation time is slightly increased but acceptable.<br />
*I started to write the paper on the kernel-independent FMM based on the Cartesian tensor and Differential Algebra. Some data was generated. However, I noticed that the efficiency is not as good as expected, although DA package has been revised for better performance. After profiling the program again, it is identified the bottle neck is the Multipole-to-Particle (M2P) operator and the Particle-to-Local (P2L) operator for ill-separated boxes.

*JLEIC Cooling Simulation<br />
*:-Continue cooling simulations for JLEIC following Steve’s suggestion. First, compare the cooling with (a) round beam, (b) flat beam with reduce drift emittance, and (c) flat beam with unchanged drift emittance. Simulation suggests (b) provides the best cooling. (c) is slightly worse than (b), but obviously better than (a). (b) also avoids the difficulty to further reduce the drift emittance of the electron beam, so it may be preferred for JLEIC cooling. Second, simulate the cooling for high density proton beam for 64 GeV CM energy with 6.4 nC/bunch electron beam. Unfortunately, even with 6.4 nC/bunch electron beam, we still do not have enough cooling for the high density proton beam. We will need to reduce the proton beam current for an equilibrium between the IBS and cooling. Third, Simulate the cooling for 200 GeV proton beam with 3.2 nC/bunch electron beam. As expected, cooling is not strong enough. We will need to either reduce the proton current or increase the electron beam current. Some of the above results were presented in the cooling ring design meeting. I mentioned to Steve there are two things we should do to optimize the cooling. One is to use an optimizer, e.g. NSGA, to explore the proton beam parameter domain with a fixed electron beam. The other is to figure out which part of the ion ring contributes the most to the horizontal IBS and investigate whether we can optimize the optics to reduce the horizontal IBS. Probably we can start this after we finish the pCDR draft.<br />
*Fast Multipole Method<br />
*:-Generate new data to compare our traceless FMM code for Coulomb kernel with the pyfmmlib. Pyfmmlib is a Python wrapper for a well optimized Fortran FMM lib for Coulomb kernel and Helmholtz kernel. Our code is developed for illustration of the idea. We have been careful to avoid redundant calculations, but the code has not been fully optimized. The numerical results show that with a lower tensor rank for relative error about 1e-4 or larger, our code is faster. But as the tensor rank goes up, the pyfmmlib outperformed our code. This is as expected since the Cartesian tensor FMM has a higher order dependence on the rank than the solid harmonic FMM. Although our work reduce the order dependence from O(n6) to O(n5), it does not change the conclusion in general. But The Cartesian tensor FMM can be used for simulations with moderate accuracy requirement. The Cartesian tensor FMM also has higher flop rate than other FMMs. As the bandwidth becomes more expansive. The Cartesian tensor FMM may be preferred in future. I add the new data and some discussion of the Cartesian tensor FMM to the FMM manuscript and submitted the revised one to JCOMP.<br />
*:-Investigate a few math parsers and found one called metl, which allows to parse the expression into a function with user defined variables. I have tested this parser with my tpsa and da code. It supports the DAVector data type without problem. This means our kernel-independent FMM code will be able to treat different kernels without recompiling. I started to write a paper on the kernel-independent FMM. Now I am writing on the analytical part. Will need more numerical result to complete the paper. <br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />

*JLEIC Cooling Simulation<br />
*:-Continue cooling simulations for JLEIC following Steve’s suggestion. First, compare the cooling with (a) round beam, (b) flat beam with reduce drift emittance, and (c) flat beam with unchanged drift emittance. Simulation suggests (b) provides the best cooling. (c) is slightly worse than (b), but obviously better than (a). (b) also avoids the difficulty to further reduce the drift emittance of the electron beam, so it may be preferred for JLEIC cooling. Second, simulate the cooling for high density proton beam for 64 GeV CM energy with 6.4 nC/bunch electron beam. Unfortunately, even with 6.4 nC/bunch electron beam, we still do not have enough cooling for the high density proton beam. We will need to reduce the proton beam current for an equilibrium between the IBS and cooling. Third, Simulate the cooling for 200 GeV proton beam with 3.2 nC/bunch electron beam. As expected, cooling is not strong enough. We will need to either reduce the proton current or increase the electron beam current. Some of the above results were presented in the cooling ring design meeting. I mentioned to Steve there are two things we should do to optimize the cooling. One is to use an optimizer, e.g. NSGA, to explore the proton beam parameter domain with a fixed electron beam. The other is to figure out which part of the ion ring contributes the most to the horizontal IBS and investigate whether we can optimize the optics to reduce the horizontal IBS. Probably we can start this after we finish the pCDR draft.<br />
*Fast Multipole Method<br />
*:-Generate new data to compare our traceless FMM code for Coulomb kernel with the pyfmmlib. Pyfmmlib is a Python wrapper for a well optimized Fortran FMM lib for Coulomb kernel and Helmholtz kernel. Our code is developed for illustration of the idea. We have been careful to avoid redundant calculations, but the code has not been fully optimized. The numerical results show that with a lower tensor rank for relative error about 1e-4 or larger, our code is faster. But as the tensor rank goes up, the pyfmmlib outperformed our code. This is as expected since the Cartesian tensor FMM has a higher order dependence on the rank than the solid harmonic FMM. Although our work reduce the order dependence from O(n6) to O(n5), it does not change the conclusion in general. But The Cartesian tensor FMM can be used for simulations with moderate accuracy requirement. The Cartesian tensor FMM also has higher flop rate than other FMMs. As the bandwidth becomes more expansive. The Cartesian tensor FMM may be preferred in future. I add the new data and some discussion of the Cartesian tensor FMM to the FMM manuscript and submitted the revised one to JCOMP.<br />
*:-Investigate a few math parsers and found one called metl, which allows to parse the expression into a function with user defined variables. I have tested this parser with my tpsa and da code. It supports the DAVector data type without problem. This means our kernel-independent FMM code will be able to treat different kernels without recompiling. I started to write a paper on the kernel-independent FMM. Now I am writing on the analytical part. Will need more numerical result to complete the paper. <br />
*Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
*:-Write for pCDR.<br />
*:-Write some code (probably in Python) to solve the dynamic equations for dust particle transfer.<br />
*:-Generate some data for kernel-independent FMM and write a paper on it.<br />
*:-Benchmark and add the turn-by-turn tracking model into JSPEC.<br />

Generate new data to compare our traceless FMM code for Coulomb kernel with the pyfmmlib. Pyfmmlib is a Python wrapper for a well optimized Fortran FMM lib for Coulomb kernel and Helmholtz kernel. Our code is developed for illustration of the idea. We have been careful to avoid redundant calculations, but the code has not been fully optimized. The numerical results show that with a lower tensor rank for relative error about 1e-4 or larger, our code is faster. But as the tensor rank goes up, the pyfmmlib outperformed our code. This is as expected since the Cartesian tensor FMM has a higher order dependence on the rank than the solid harmonic FMM. Although our work reduce the order dependence from O(n6) to O(n5), it does not change the conclusion in general. But The Cartesian tensor FMM can be used for simulations with moderate accuracy requirement. The Cartesian tensor FMM also has higher flop rate than other FMMs. As the bandwidth becomes more expansive. The Cartesian tensor FMM may be preferred in future. I add the new data and some discussion of the Cartesian tensor FMM to the FMM manuscript and submitted the revised one to JCOMP.<br />
<br />
Investigate a few math parsers and found one called metl, which allows to parse the expression into a function with user defined variables. I have tested this parser with my tpsa and da code. It supports the DAVector data type without problem. This means our kernel-independent FMM code will be able to treat different kernels without recompiling. I started to write a paper on the kernel-independent FMM. Now I am writing on the analytical part. Will need more numerical result to complete the paper. <br />
<br />
Work plan in the following two weeks<br />
<br />
Write for pCDR.<br />
Write some code (probably in Python) to solve the dynamic equations for dust particle transfer.<br />
Generate some data for kernel-independent FMM and write a paper on it.<br />
Benchmark and add the turn-by-turn tracking model into JSPEC.<br />

*Working on an LDRD proposal for a laser-driven polarized deuteron source for JLEIC. The concept involves a new way to nuclearly-polarize deuterons that are bound in deuterium halide molecules (DCl, DBr, etc.) using a few pulses of IR laser light to excite a rotational state in the molecule. The rotational polarization couples to the nuclear polarizations of the bound atoms through the hyperfine interaction, and the atoms are dissociated with another laser pulse at an appropriate time where the polarization on the deuteron is maximal. The LDRD proposal only covers the neutral polarized atom source as the first stage for a JLEIC polarized ion source - polarized ions could be generated with the proposed source by the resonant charge-exchange ionization method utilized in existing atomic beam polarized ion sources.<br />

**JSPEC Development<br />
*:-JSPEC GUI starts to obtain outside users.<br />
*:-It was reported to us that JSPEC cannot read some MAD-X tfs files provided by Dr. Steck from GSI. I revised the lattice file parser to read these files. A check of the element position is also added to the parser. If the position of one element is the same as that of the previous element, this element will not be saved into the lattice. In this way we avoid redundant elements and redundant calculation for IBS rate. For the tfs file from Dr. Steck, the element number is reduced by 50% after this redundant element check is applied.<br />
*:-It is also reported to us that JSPEC generates NaNs in some simulations. I checked the input file and output file and found that the problem is due to very large product of the time step and the expansion rate, due to which the coordinates of some particle go out of the range of the double floating point number. JSPEC code is revised to prevent this from happening. If a coordinate is less than 1e-60, some computations will not be carried out and the coordinate will not be updated. However, to make the simulation valid in physics, it is necessary to make sure the product of the time step and the expansion rate is not too large.<br />
*:-I am integrating the turn-by-turn model and the RF model to the JSPEC release. This is needed for IMP data experiment and JSPEC benchmarking with the IMP data. This has not been finished.<br />
**JLEIC Cooling Simulation<br />
*:-Simulations were carried out to check what we can achieve without cooling at the cooler for 100 GeV proton beam (44.7 GeV CM energy). I tried to use both round beam and flat beam and assume either the constant proton bunch length with varying momentum spread or both constant proton bunch length and constant vary momentum. The results are summarized in Table 1. If we use a round beam, we see severe reduction of proton beam current without dispersion at the cooler. Using a flat beam helps us, because the charge density increases for a given total charge number and hence the cooling is stronger. For fixed bunch length with varying momentum spread with flat beam cooling, we still see a large reduction of proton current. But if we assume the momentum spread is also constant, there is almost no need to reduce the proton beam current. The flat electron beam provides enough cooling even without dispersion at the cooler. But this means we are able to introduce longitudinal heating to compensate the cooling and maintain the momentum spread. <br />

Joe Gubeli:<br />
*Most of the last two weeks were devoted to designing a new imager for the Lambertson viewer. Due to the small chamber I had to develop a couple of new analytical models as well as attempt to learn how I can use ZEMAX optimization code to perform the same task not using the thin lens approximation. While the imager optics were not difficult attempting to add an inline illuminator was difficult. This required a few iterations before I ended up with a nice design. Other major tasks performed this week were LCLS-II and Radiabeam CRADA work. For LCLS-II it was several meeting including weekly meetings, and design reviews for cable routing, Cryo can and Cryo. I also worked with S&A giving them floor plate anchor locations and with the new installation team on WGs.<br />

It was reported to us that JSPEC cannot read some MAD-X tfs files provided by Dr. Steck from GSI. I revised the lattice file parser to read these files. A check of the element position is also added to the parser. If the position of one element is the same as that of the previous element, this element will not be saved into the lattice. In this way we avoid redundant elements and redundant calculation for IBS rate. For the tfs file from Dr. Steck, the element number is reduced by 50% after this redundant element check is applied.<br />
*:-It is also reported to us that JSPEC generates NaNs in some simulations. I checked the input file and output file and found that the problem is due to very large product of the time step and the expansion rate, due to which the coordinates of some particle go out of the range of the double floating point number. JSPEC code is revised to prevent this from happening. If a coordinate is less than 1e-60, some computations will not be carried out and the coordinate will not be updated. However, to make the simulation valid in physics, it is necessary to make sure the product of the time step and the expansion rate is not too large.<br />
*:-I am integrating the turn-by-turn model and the RF model to the JSPEC release. This is needed for IMP data experiment and JSPEC benchmarking with the IMP data. This has not been finished.<br />
**JLEIC Cooling Simulation<br />
*:-Simulations were carried out to check what we can achieve without cooling at the cooler for 100 GeV proton beam (44.7 GeV CM energy). I tried to use both round beam and flat beam and assume either the constant proton bunch length with varying momentum spread or both constant proton bunch length and constant vary momentum. The results are summarized in Table 1. If we use a round beam, we see severe reduction of proton beam current without dispersion at the cooler. Using a flat beam helps us, because the charge density increases for a given total charge number and hence the cooling is stronger. For fixed bunch length with varying momentum spread with flat beam cooling, we still see a large reduction of proton current. But if we assume the momentum spread is also constant, there is almost no need to reduce the proton beam current. The flat electron beam provides enough cooling even without dispersion at the cooler. But this means we are able to introduce longitudinal heating to compensate the cooling and maintain the momentum spread. <br />

**JSPEC Development - A hollow beam model is added for both coasting and bunched electron beam. As Slava suggested, putting the electron beam at the edge of the ion bunch may provide larger friction force. This is true for a single ion. But, if we consider the whole bunch, it also means less ions see the electrons. I need to do some simulations with the hollow electron beam to check what we can achieve. Fixed a few bugs reported by Paul at Radiasoft.<br />
**Extend the tpsa code - This is considered done for now. I have cleaned up the code, added doxygen comments, and written cmake files to generate static and shared library. I also compared the new code with the original code and see an improvements of efficiency. A brief introduction about the changes and how to use the code is written. Although I think the efficiency can be further improved, but there is no urgent need for it. Besides being used in the kernel-independent FMM, the code can be used in other codes we are developing. For example, in GHOST, the users need to provide both the transfer map and the ODE of the generating function. The latter one may be not very straightforward for the users. Actually, it can be generated from the transfer map using some differential algebra based algorithm. With the help of the tpsa code, we should be able to re-do the DA algorithm and generate the ODE. Then the transfer map will be the only input needed for GHOST.<br />
**JLEIC Cooling Simulation - Did some simulation with 1.6 nC/bunch electron beam as Steve suggests. As expected, the difficulty is still the imbalance of the IBS in different directions. Longitudinal cooling is still too strong. If we reduce the proton beam current, we can find an equilibrium state. However, some cooling is wasted. Assuming the proton bunch length constant is helpful. But I think we should/could be able to improve it.<br />
**Others - Reviewed two papers. (Only one paper left. Not accept more reviews before we finish pCDR report.)<br />

**JSPEC Development - Read a few references to understand how the electron beam space charge model is derived. Basically, there are two effects due to the space charge field. Firstly, the potential changes within the electron bunch along with the distance to the axis, which results in a change of longitudinal velocity. Second, under the effects of both the electric field caused by the space charge and the external magnetic field, electrons starts to rotate around the magnetic field line with a drift velocity. Both effects will change the ion velocity with respect to the electrons. The second effect also leads to an increase of the electron temperature. The code to calculate both effects for DC electron beam has been finished. It is under development for Gaussian beam.<br />
**Extend the tpsa code - Lingyun’s tpsa code is used in my fmm code for arbitrary kernel function. This code has been revised for better performance and additional function, so that we can perform some differential algebra work without using COSY Infinity. Firstly, the memory management was changed. It was changed once before for FMM usage, by allocating the memory pool for all DA vectors at the beginning instead of allocating for each DA vector when they are used for the first time. This approach significantly increased the efficiency. But in that application, the user has to manually clean the pool, otherwise the pool will be full soon and the calculation cannot continued. This is inconvenient. Now the memory pool is controlled by a linked list, which records the available memory for new DA vectors. The linked list is upgraded automatically each time when a DA vector is created or deleted. In this way, the user will never need to worry about the memory pool as long as the pool size is not too small. The efficiency of this approach is a little worse than the one in FMM, due to the operations on the linked list, but still much better than the original way. Secondly, a few functions are revised for better performance and a few functions are added, e.g. calculating an arbitrary power of a DA vector. Thirdly, the ultimate purpose is to calculate the composition of two groups of DA vectors, which is essential for DA based algorithms. The original tpsa code has this function, but it was implemented in a very naïve way with bad efficiency.

**JSPEC Development - Read a few references to understand how the electron beam space charge model is derived. Basically, there are two effects due to the space charge field. Firstly, the potential changes within the electron bunch along with the distance to the axis, which results in a change of longitudinal velocity. Second, under the effects of both the electric field caused by the space charge and the external magnetic field, electrons starts to rotate around the magnetic field line with a drift velocity. Both effects will change the ion velocity with respect to the electrons. The second effect also leads to an increase of the electron temperature. The code to calculate both effects for DC electron beam has been finished. It is under development for Gaussian beam.<br />
**Extend the tpsa code - Lingyun’s tpsa code is used in my fmm code for arbitrary kernel function. This code has been revised for better performance and additional function, so that we can perform some differential algebra work without using COSY Infinity. Firstly, the memory management was changed. It was changed once before for FMM usage, by allocating the memory pool for all DA vectors at the beginning instead of allocating for each DA vector when they are used for the first time. This approach significantly increased the efficiency. But in that application, the user has to manually clean the pool, otherwise the pool will be full soon and the calculation cannot continued. This is inconvenient. Now the memory pool is controlled by a linked list, which records the available memory for new DA vectors. The linked list is upgraded automatically each time when a DA vector is created or deleted. In this way, the user will never need to worry about the memory pool as long as the pool size is not too small. The efficiency of this approach is a little worse than the one in FMM, due to the operations on the linked list, but still much better than the original way. Secondly, a few functions are revised for better performance and a few functions are added, e.g. calculating an arbitrary power of a DA vector. Thirdly, the ultimate purpose is to calculate the composition of two groups of DA vectors, which is essential for DA based algorithms. The original tpsa code has this function, but it was implemented in a very naïve way with bad efficiency. A group of functions have been added, including subscribing one base in a DA vector by a real number, subscribing one base in a DA vector by a DA vector, subscribing all bases in a DA vector by a group of DA vectors, composition of two groups of DA vectors, composition of a group of DA vectors with a group of real numbers (tracking with a DA map). Finally, a wrapper is added with overloaded operators, so that one can use the DA vectors as basic data types. The development is almost done. Most functions have been finished and tested with COSY Infinity. I need to test two more functions and document the code.<br />
**Update on the kernel independent FMM - Updated the DA package used in the kernel independent FMM code by adding moving constructor and revising the operator overloading. The efficiency was improved for about 3%. Now I think the code is good enough for demonstrating the idea. I will start generating data and preparing a paper on it.<br />

**JSPEC Development - Read a few references to understand how the electron beam space charge model is derived. Basically, there are two effects due to the space charge field. Firstly, the potential changes within the electron bunch along with the distance to the axis, which results in a change of longitudinal velocity. Second, under the effects of both the electric field caused by the space charge and the external magnetic field, electrons starts to rotate around the magnetic field line with a drift velocity. Both effects will change the ion velocity with respect to the electrons. The second effect also leads to an increase of the electron temperature. The code to calculate both effects for DC electron beam has been finished. It is under development for Gaussian beam.<br />
**Extend the tpsa code - Lingyun’s tpsa code is used in my fmm code for arbitrary kernel function. This code has been revised for better performance and additional function, so that we can perform some differential algebra work without using COSY Infinity. Firstly, the memory management was changed. It was changed once before for FMM usage, by allocating the memory pool for all DA vectors at the beginning instead of allocating for each DA vector when they are used for the first time. This approach significantly increased the efficiency. But in that application, the user has to manually clean the pool, otherwise the pool will be full soon and the calculation cannot continued. This is inconvenient. Now the memory pool is controlled by a linked list, which records the available memory for new DA vectors. The linked list is upgraded automatically each time when a DA vector is created or deleted. In this way, the user will never need to worry about the memory pool as long as the pool size is not too small. The efficiency of this approach is a little worse than the one in FMM, due to the operations on the linked list, but still much better than the original way. Secondly, a few functions are revised for better performance and a few functions are added, e.g. calculating an arbitrary power of a DA vector. Thirdly, the ultimate purpose is to calculate the composition of two groups of DA vectors, which is essential for DA based algorithms. The original tpsa code has this function, but it was implemented in a very naïve way with bad efficiency. A group of functions have been added, including subscribing one base in a DA vector by a real number, subscribing one base in a DA vector by a DA vector, subscribing all bases in a DA vector by a group of DA vectors, composition of two groups of DA vectors, composition of a group of DA vectors with a group of real numbers (tracking with a DA map). Finally, a wrapper is added with overloaded operators, so that one can use the DA vectors as basic data types. The development is almost done. Most functions have been finished and tested with COSY Infinity. I need to test two more functions and document the code.<br />
**Update on the kernel independent FMM - Updated the DA package used in the kernel independent FMM code by adding moving constructor and revising the operator overloading. The efficiency was improved for about 3%. Now I think the code is good enough for demonstrating the idea. I will start generating data and preparing a paper on it.<br />
**Others - Reviewed four papers.<br />
