+
      - Development of JSPEC code
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.
+
      - DeCooling Rate Calculation for JLEIC with New Parameters
*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.
+
      - BeamBeam3D
*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.

    Next two weeks (Jan 18 - Feb 1)
pCDR writing
+
      - Finish th core-tail model  
*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.
+

      - Continue documenting JSPEC development
*:-Reviewed two papers

*:-Work plan in the following two weeks
+
      - Write for three FOA quarterly reports
*:-Continue writing and polishing the pCDR report
