Ignored, kept for backward compatibility only.
Optionally used to assign an element to a group, with a user-defined name. Group names will appear in the parameter output file in the column ElementGroup
This element simulates a multipole element using a 4th-order sympletic integration. Specification of the multipole strength is through an SDDS file. The file is expected to contain a single page of data with the following elements:
The MULT element is also available, which allows the same functionality without an external file, for a single component.
The transport matrix for FMULT elements is determined by tracking and will affect the tunes, chromaticities, etc.
