Best Designs - Linac900Ext9d2

As with last weeks 6d2 lattice, we're working on a series of blocks, and phases. Now 9 blocks and the d2 RF phase setup.

Finally, it's time to step away from the "removable" generation of lattices, and into the "ext" generation. These are experimentation with longer linacs and the RF phase (as more fully detailed here)

New lattice files - 7Xc2 & 9Xc2

Those of you paying attention to your clients on Friday would have notices that they were downloading new lattices, and finishing simulations more quickly. That’s because new lattices have been introduced. Also, the v4.44d client has also been finally put to rest. There will be no more lattices that allow it to be used, so after almost a year, the jitter-free 4.45 will finally be the ‘required’ client.

With the retirement of both Linac900Ext10tc2 and Linac900Ext9X we’re moving on to Linac900Ext7Xc2 and Linac900Ext9Xc2. Both are development improvements of previous lattices, and attempt to work on phase handling, as well as investigate new designs without being side-tracked by jitter.

The other alternative to adding complexity, is simplifying. The problem with such huge search-spaces, is that desirable targets are relatively small, and can be missed. By reducing complexity, we can make them more likely to be found.

The recent changes in searching for the designs with higher energies and increased yields have been productive, with yield percentages equal to, or above many previous designs, even before the higher energy levels are considered. Yet they've all been a bit simple in the design phase, so it's time we added another layer of complexity.
