SwarmC: simulating the beam-beam interaction for a Linac-Ring Electron-Ion Collider

Kevin B. Beard

The swarmc program models colliding beams and is a direct descendant of swarm, by R. Li, G. Krafft, and J. Boyce. It is being developed and used to estimate the luminosity that can be obtained from an Electron Ion Collider.

Its development is reminiscent of the Charlie Brown adage "If you learn more from your mistakes than your successes, then I must be the smartest person in the whole world", and its modifications have brought to light many important details of the physics.
