The output file from this command contains the following columns, giving values of quantities at the exit of each element, unless otherwise noted.

The output file contains the following parameters. Note that chromatic quantities depend on the order settings of the individual elements, the default order (in run_setup), and the concatenation order given in the twiss_output command. These quantities pertain to the end of the lattice or to the lattice as a whole.

N.B.: the higher-order dispersion and higher-order chromaticity are computed using the concatenated third-order matrix. However, elegant only has third-order matrices for three elements: alpha magnets, quadrupoles, and sextupoles. This may be acceptable if any dipoles (for example) have large bending radius. Users who are concerned about these effects should perform off-energy tracking using canonical elements (i.e., CSBEND, KQUAD, KSEXT, and MULT), which include energy dependence to all orders.

Also, note that by default all elements are computed to second order only. You must change the default\_order parameter on run\_setup to 3 in order to use the third-order matrices for alpha magnets, quadrupoles, and sextupoles. You may also use the ORDER parameter on individual element definitions.
