We review the scattering models available in ICOOL. Two new options have recently been added
using the scattering models of U. Fano and of A. Tollestrup. We find excellent agreement
between the Monte Carlo distributions from ICOOL using these models and the experimental
results from the MuScat experiment. We also find good agreement of the hydrogen data with the
ELMS model. The new scattering models lead to ~5% improvement in accepted muons for the
Study 2a neutrino factory and ~65-150% improvement in the merit factor for the ideal RFOFO
cooling ring.

This revision (1) corrects an error in the Bethe model for carbon, (2) presents liquid hydrogen
data for the measured density of the MuScat experiment, and (3) gives a quantitative comparison
of the scattering probability near 0 degrees.
