Because of the highly repetitive nature and simple cell structure of
FFAG lattices, it is possible to automatically design these lattices.
In designing an FFAG lattice, one will try to meet certain constraints
and then minimize some cost function by varying any remaining free
parameters. I will first review previously published work on
optimized FFAG design. Then I will describe recent advances in the
understanding of linear non-scaling FFAG design that have come from
these optimization techniques. I will describe how the lattice
designs depend on some input parameters to the design. Finally, I
will present a set of FFAG lattices that are optimized for muon
acceleration using these techniques.
