Practical muon cooling rings could lead to better performance or lower cost
designs of neutrino factories or muon colliders. The performance of the ring
described here compares favorably with the linear cooling channel used in the
second U.S. Neutrino Factory Study\cite{study2}. The 6D phase space density
of an idealized ring is increased by a factor of 238, compared with the linear channel's factor of only 15. The simulations make use of fully realistic magnetic fields, and include absorber and rf cavity windows, and empty lattice cells for injection/extraction.
