The paper displays calculations of linear systems as explained by Dr. Guido Sterbini. We also show a simple nonlinear calculation involving a rotation followed by an octupole kick. Some analytical calculations are compared to the Truncated Power Series Algebra (TPSA) results. The examples use the library PTC which is in MAD-X of CERN and BMAD of Cornell (see Ref. ).
