Also a possible beam polarisation described by option POLARIZAti refers to a beam with its axis coinciding with the geometry z-axis. The purpose of option BEAMAXES is to allow the user to define direction, angular divergence, transversal profile and polarisation for a beam of arbitrary orientation, as defined by options BEAMPOSit and BEAMAXES together. For this purpose, the user can define direction, divergence, profile and polarisation in a beam reference frame. Option BEAMAXES establishes the correspondence between beam and geometry reference frame. 2) The origin of the beam reference frame coincides always with that of the geometry frame. 3) The user needs to input only the direction cosines of the x- and of the z-axis of the beam frame. The direction of the y-axis is determined by the program as the vector product z X x. 4) If the x- and z-axes defined with BEAMAXES are not exactly perpendicular (in double precision!) the program forces perpendicularity by adjusting the cosines of the x-axis. 5) The direction cosines of the x- and z-axes do not need to be exactly normalised to 1. The code takes care of properly normalising all cosines.Example:* The next option cards describe a 10 GeV proton beam with a divergence of* 50 mrad and a gaussian profile in the "beam x"-direction and in the* "beam y"-direction described by standard deviations sigma_x = 1. cm* (FWHM = 2.36 cm) and sigma_y = 0.5 cm (FWHM = 1.18 cm). The beam starts* from point (0,0,0) and is directed along the "beam y" axis. The "beam x"* and "geometry x" axis coincides, while the "beam z" axis is at 45 degrees* with both the "geometry y" and "geometry z" axes. The resulting beam* direction in the geometry frame is at 45 degrees with respect to the* "geometry y" axis and at -45 degrees with respect to the "geometry z"* one. The "beam x" axis has cosines 1,0,0 and the "beam z" axis has* cosines 0, cos(pi/4), cos(pi/4)*...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+...BEAM -10.0 0.0 50.0 -2.36 -1.18 1.0 PROTON BEAMPOS 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 BEAMAXES 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.7071068 0.7071068
