Comparison of Zgoubi and S-Code regarding the FFAG muon acceleration

Abstract : The high flux accelerator based neutrino source is foreseen as one the next generation facilities of particle physics. Called Neutrino Factory (NuFact), it will be based on a muon storage ring where muons will decay, creating high flux neutrino beams. Muons are supposed to be accelerated from 5 to 20 GeV before being injected into the storage ring. In that purpose, Fixed Field Alternating Gradient accelerators (FFAG) are one of the possibilities. Cell designs have been done and tracking studies are on their way using codes such as MAD, S-Code or Zgoubi. In order to cross-check results so obtained, we have performed comparisons between S-Code and Zgoubi at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The present report will explain the different simulations done and the results.
