I am working on the design of another high-current ion optical system in Europe and need to figure out how to simulate a beam rejection of 1 in 10^12 particles. Now this would take much longer than the project lifetime in even a very simple approximation on my machines, so if the people who contribute to LHC@home don\\\\\\\'t mind also helping out the physicists who work only at a few hundred MeV, I could certainly use some idle CPU cycles. People seem to be interested in some more work. We would just have to see if my sims could run through the software that you are using. Are you using some order-by-order transfer mapping or what exactly?

Cheers!

Hello,

I am just another participant - this is not an official answer:

I am working on the design of another high-current ion optical system in Europe


Are you in academia? Otherwise one wrinkle to watch out for is that commercial use of LHC@Home may not be possible.

and need to figure out how to simulate a beam rejection of 1 in 10^12 particles... We would just have to see if my sims could run through the software that you are using. Are you using some order-by-order transfer mapping or what exactly?


The project currently uses SixTrack for tracking - you would have to read the manual to see if it does what you want. If so I suppose it should be possible to submit your input decks to the current executable.

If not, you would have to recompile your chosen code including the BOINC libraries and revalidate - not much fun.
Chucking a few billion particles through Turtle might actually be easier!

Thanks

Henry

Are there any programs that simulate the LHC that I could run on my laptop? Something I could download with variables that the user plugs in, mass,speed,temp, material, etc.

Maybe get started on this project a few months early, or just for the science involved? I bet there would be a few others interested in seeing something similar to the video LHC shows. Re: what they expect to see right before we begin the next universe. I'd love to see a "mini black hole", maybe there was something to the Beatles's Yellow Submarine scene when the vacuum sucks itself up. Like "ouroboros"? I don't know how to spell it, sorry. Just too lazy to look it up or spell-check, it is like 4 am here in steamy FL, USA. As a writer I'm used to dribbling on and just deleting 99% of what I do.. (I'm leaving an open for some smart retort)

The whole project is just so fantastic. Like nothing else. I can't wait to see the results. It does fascinate.
