Using a moment formalism [1,2] we model beam
transport in the muon collider cooling channel. This model contains much
of the physics we believe to be relevant to muon cooling such as ionization
energy loss and multiple scattering. Space-charge forces are currently
neglected but can, in principle, be added to the model. Previously, this
model has been shown to closely agree with particle
tracking [1] while being significantly less computationally
intensive. Presently our simulation is limited to the six-dimensional
dynamics of the transverse cooling section. A matrix representation of an
emittance exchange section is presented. This formulation of emittance
exchange can either be ideal (conserving 6-d emittance) or can include
energy loss and heating representative of the effects expected in a
realistic emittance exchange section. These elements should give our model
sufficient generality to enable the preliminary, yet realistic, design of a
complete muon cooling channel.
