Abstract
The modeling of electron cloud e¿ects is important for accelerator projects such as the ILC damping ring and the Fermilab main injector. In the case of the Fer¬milab main injector, electron cloud e¿ects are expected to play a signi¿cant role when the main injector operates in the regime of a high-intensity proton source for the neutrino program. In the ideal case, computational acceler¬ator physicists would like to be able model electron cloud generation and dynamics in a single self-consistent simulation. This project will develop a component-based electron cloud simulation for the Synergia2 beam dynamics framework. The components will be created using the Common Component Architecture. Extending the Synergia2 framework so that it can support electron cloud simulations will require the collaboration of application scientists, applied mathematicians, and computer scientists. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: By focusing on the needs for a component development and distribution infrastructure within the computational science community, the technology would address a unique niche among the potentially much larger software engineering market.
