Accelerator and Beam Conditions Critical for EIC Simulations

A note summarizes how measurements at the Electron-Ion Collider will be influenced by accelerator and beam effects, including the:

The accelerator and beam effects may have profound consequences on the measurement capabilities of the EIC, as well as the design and layout of the detectors. The effects studied in the note should be included in physics and detector simulations for the EIC. The supplementary material gives example implementations on the generator level as well as for a generator-agnostic approach on how to integrate these effects in physics and detector simulations for the EIC.

It also includes a movie illustrating the electron and proton bunch movement during their interaction. The visualization is for an electron-proton collision at 18x275 GeV and based on the transport model described in the note.
