      - River helped me to repeat Sergei’s deriving of the Bjorken and Mtingwa (BM) formula for the IBS rate calculation
 +
        using the elliptical integral and to check whether we can extend Sergei’s method on a general case including
 +
        vertical dispersion and all the missing terms in the oringal BM formula. Our current conclusion is the total rate,
 +
        summation of the rates in all the three directions, can be calculated using Sergei’s formula, as long as we calculate
 +
        the eigenvalue of the I matrix, which is related to the dispersion matrix, numerically. Since the I matrix is a
 +
        symmetric real matrix, its eigenvalues can be calculated using some routine algorithm. We failed to find the explicit
 +
        formula for the rate in each individual direction. To find the formula, we need explicit expression of the
 +
        eigenvalue, which does not exist for a general matrix I. I have an idea of decompose the I matrix into three parts,
 +
        treat them separately and take the summation. But I am not positive this method gives correct or approximate answer.

      - The core-tail model for non-Gaussian IBS is in process
 +
      - Finish space charge effect in friction force calculation
 +
      - Continue documenting JSPEC development
 +
      - Electron beam Space charge effect on friction force calculation is in process.
 +
      - Cooling Rate Calculation for JLEIC with New Parameters
 +
      - In the new parameter set of JLEIC, the proton beam emittance and bunch length at the collision energy have been
 +
        increased to mitigate the severe IBS effect. For the 63.3 GeV CM energy case, the collision frequency has been
 +
        changed back to 442 MHz, hence the charges per bunch has been significantly reduced, which helps to achieve a
 +
        milder IBS effect. The cooling rate and the IBS rate are calculated for both the 44.7 GeV CM energy and the 63.3
 +
        CM energy. 3.2 nC/bunch electrons provide enough cooling for both case. The challenge is still the distribution of
 +
        the cooling. As usual, we have very strong IBS effect in the horizontal direction and very strong cooling effect in
 +
        the vertical and longitudinal direction.
 +
      - BeamBeam3D
 +
      - Yu Luo send me the MAD-X lattice file for RHIC at 250 GeV. With Vascily’s help, I am able to generate the truncated
 +
        map using the PTC package in MAD-X. This lattice file does not include any RF cavity, so the 4D truncated maps are
 +
        generated. When tracking up to 1 million turns with a 2nd order map, phase space increase happens. When we perform
 +
        symplectic tracking using our codes, the phase space volume conserves in the 1 million turns. All four kinds of
 +
        generating functions have been tested and they all work as expected. When using the 3rd order truncated map in
 +
        tracking, no noticeable phase space distortion is observed in up to 1 billion turns. This may be because that this
 +
        lattice does not include the high nonlinear sections, such as the interacting region.
