Because of the highly repetitive nature and simple cell structure of FFAG lattices, it is possible to automatically design these lattices. In designing an FFAG lattice, one will try to meet certain constraints and then minimize some cost function by varying any remaining free parameters. I will first review previously published work on optimized FFAG(More)
Muons present unique challenges for acceleration. First of all, muons decay: this means that any acceleration must be rapid. A practical minimum is around 1 MV/m. This rules out traditional synchrotron designs, which contain a relatively small amount of RF per turn. One could have more RF per turn in a synchrotron, but then one runs into the challenge of(More)
There are two situations during commissioning in which it is desired to have less current than the nominal total current, but in which the operating conditions may be less than optimal. This report examines what constraints will be imposed on these situations by the growth rates of transverse instabilities when compared to Landau damping thresholds. The(More)
