Title Benchmarking of tracking codes (BDSIM/DIMAD) using the ILC extraction lines
Abstract The study of beam transport is of central importance to the design and performance assessment of modern particle accelerators. In this work, we benchmark two contemporary codes - DIMAD and BDSIM, the latter being a relatively new tracking code built within the framework of GEANT4. We consider both the 20 mrad and 2 mrad extraction lines of the International Linear Collider (ILC) and we perform tracking studies of heavily disrupted postcollision electron beams. We find that the two codes mostly give an equivalent description of the beam transport.
