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.
- Simulated 10000 events of ePb collision in JLEIC IR section for the LDRD of Geometry tagging for heavy ions at JLEIC.
- Dynamic aperture study with tune scan for the JLEIC ion collider ring.
- Study on detector solenoid compensation with skew quads beside IR triplet.
- Attended a high energy physics program at Hong Kong Univ. for two weeks. Gave a 45 min plenary talk on review of EIC
- Completed a quarterly report on FOA grant
- Started preparation of the JLEIC spring collaboration
