Beta function correction

Post by wguo » 26 Sep 2008, 11:41


We know Elegant has a closed orbit correction function, but it cannot correct beta functions. For simulation the beta functions always have to be corrected in presence of errors, even just with misalignment error. Anothe example is when IDs are added. I wrote one using tcl and sdds, but the performance is poor. Is it possible to have a build-in module?

To me the input and output should have
The input conditions:
quadrupole knobs, the target beta function file, weights (or alternative observation element locations),
and the output results:
the residual beta function difference, the change of the quadrupole settings, and the final lattice file.

It's a good suggestion. I'll put it on the list.
