Nature of problem:
Calculations of the ideal tensions and frequencies of the bunching elements in the transfer line to obtain a convenient emittance ellipse.

Solution method:
The solution is given by the subprogram NEXTPD, which gives the elements of the final vector by the following relation:
                          
 [  phif]  [1         BB] [phii]                                         
 [deltai] =[-CC*SP    DD] [deltai],                                      
 [phii]                                                                  
 [deltai]
characterises the beam before entering the bunching system, and the first matrix on the right hand side of the equation is the general matrix describing the bunching parameters, whose significance is explained in the description of the program structure.

Running time:
For execution 19 s in the UNIVAC 1100 time/sharing EXEC-multi-processor system.
