NOTE: This revision contains a new comparison of the realistic RFOFO
field from tipped solenoids with the off-axis multipole expansions
used in ICOOL. Bob Palmer pointed out an inconsistency in the way the
odd, skew multipoles were handled previously.

We examine the off-axis field components for the RFOFO cooling ring.
The ring consists of 12 cells, each containing two solenoids. Each
solenoid is modeled here as a current sheet. We check the accuracy of
the off-axis field expansions used in ICOOL by comparing with the fields
computed directly using an independent sum-of-sheets code. For the
complicated fields present in the RFOFO ring the 4th order off-axis
expansions used in ICOOL reproduce the true field values to ~0.2 gauss.
This is probably sufficient for the simulations to reproduce any
nonlinear effects introduced by the real field. Typical fractional
errors for 4th order on a 10 cm test circle are ~2 10-4 for BX and BY
and ~1 10-5 for BS.
