Toutatis rapid explanation
The variable for integrating the particle motion is the time. This integration is performed with the help of a symplectic transformation.
One important feature is the possibility to inject different beams (charge and mass) simultaneously.
Toutatis successfully simulated the RFQs of the Spallation Neutron Source (USA), the J-PARC linac (Japan) and the Low Energy Demonstrator Accelerator (USA).
Each time Toutatis is executed, a file in the .dat format for TraceWin code is generated.
To run it with the GUI, only for linux Platform, you need to install Tcl/Tk 8.4 or higher and BLT 2.4 first. A lot of chart describing the linac (average aperture, modulation, voltage law, …) where zoom, hardcopy, save on disk, scale change, copy-paste tools can be used.
