Amy Sy

    - Skew PIC: Modified MADX input files for compatibility with genetic algorithm optimization on ifarm cluster. Working on comparing multipole optimization results obtained using MINUIT and with the genetic algorithm. Introduced a simple cooling model into the Skew PIC channel to simulate ideal ionization cooling and observed damping in transverse phase space in the absence of induced parametric resonance. This is an indication of transverse-longitudinal coupling in the channel. Induced a parametric resonance in the channel using both "delta-like" and "sinusoidal-like" quadrupoles, but parametric resonance behavior gets washed out in the presence of RF. Looking into the dynamics of the inherent transverse-longitudinal coupling.
