Abstract
The Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is a third-generation, high-brightness, 7 GeV storage-ring-based x-ray light sources that has been in operation since 1996. Several possible long-term upgrades to the APS are investigated at Argonne, including an ERL-based upgrade and an Ultimate Storage Ring (USR), both of which could provide more than two orders of magnitude improvement in brightness over the existing APS. In the near term, Argonne is pursuing an APS upgrade project known as the APS Renewal, aiming at improvements through upgrades of beamline optics, detectors, and end-station equipment. Intensive computation is a pivotal aspect of this accelerator modeling and optimization e
