Local correction of quadrupole errors at LHC interaction regions using action and phase jump analysis on turn-by-turn beam position data


Author(s): Javier Fernando Cardona, Alba Carolina García Bonilla, and Rogelio Tomás García

This article shows that the effect of all quadrupole errors present in an interaction region with low $β*$ can be modeled by an equivalent magnetic kick, which can be estimated from action and phase jumps found on beam position data. This equivalent kick is used to find the strengths that certain no...
