Nature of problem:
The computation of normal forms of symplectic maps provides informations on the structure of the phase space in a neighbourhood of a fixed point. This approach can be useful in beam dynamics to analyse the effects of nonlinearities of a magnetic lattice. The normal forms allow one to analytically optimize a magnetic lattice, constructing effective correction strategies for the multipolar errors.
The computation of normal forms is based on the solution of a conjugation equation for the initial map. It is convenient to represent both the normalizing transformation and the normal form by means of a Lie transformation. Then we can solve the equation by a perturbative method on the homogeneous orders of the Taylor expansion. The main algorithmic tool is the composition of two polynomial maps up to a given order in the Taylor expansion.
