Efficient implementation of general-purpose particle tracking on GPUs can result in significant performance benefits to large-scale particle tracking and tracking-based accelerator optimization simulations. We present our work on CUDA kernels for transfer maps of single-particle-dynamics and collective-effects beamline elements, to be incorporated into a GPU-accelerated version of the ANL's accelerator code ELEGANT. In particular, we discuss techniques for efficient utilization of the device shared, cache, and local memory in the design of single-particle and collective-effects kernels. We also discuss the use of data-parallel and hardware-assisted approaches (segmented scan and atomic updates) for resolving memory contention issues at the charge deposition stage of algorithms for modeling collective effects. We present and discuss performance results for the CUDA kernels developed and optimized as part of this project.

  The CLIC main linac accelerating structures will be powered by the Power Extraction and Transfer Structure (PETS) located in the drive beam decelerators. Misalignments of the PETS will excite dipolar modes in the couplers of the main linac structures that will kick the beam leading to beam quality degradation. In this paper, the impact of such dipolar kicks is studied, and tolerances, based on analytical estimations, are found both in the single- and the multi-bunch regimes. Numerical simulation obtained using the tracking code PLACET are shown to confirm the analytical estimates.

  Two new high gradient C100 cryostats with a total of 16 new cavities were installed at the end of the CEBAF south linac during the 2011 summer shutdown as part of the 12 GeV upgrade project at Jefferson Lab. We ran recirculating beam breakup (BBU) study in November 2011 to evaluate CEBAF low energy performance, measure transport optics, and evaluate BBU thresholds due to higher order modes (HOMs) in these cavities. This paper discusses the experiment setup, cavity measurements, machine setup, optics measurements, and lower bounds on existing CEBAF C100 BBU thresholds established by this experiment.
