1 Compiling and running SixTrack to generate collgaps files.

  • useful presentation:
https://indico.cern.ch/event/623918/contributions/2517815/attachments/1430968/2198642/2017-03-21_SixTrack-COLL-improvements.pdf
  • apparently possible to build on mac, but I couldn't get it to work (after one try, in fairness). lxplus is a safer bet.
  • build manual is useful and found in the git repo @ Doc/building_sixtrack (if below instructions go out of date then refer to manual…)
    • compile it with make (requires latex).
  • Example SixTrack input directory:
    • CollDB_RunII.data
    • CollPositionsRunII.b1.dat
    • MADX/
    • SurveyWithCrossing_XP_lowb.dat
    • allapert.b1
    • fort.2
    • fort.3

cd SixTrack/SixTrack
./cmake_six COLLIMAT -CRLIBM
cd ~/to/my/sixtrack/input/directory/

# You can interrupt once it starts tracking.
# You should now have a collgaps.dat in your pwd.
