Abstract : Magnetic field equations are solved numerically for axially symmetric coils of rectangular cross section, infinitely thin closed current loops, and infinitely thin, finite-length, current-carrying elements. Calculations were made by utilizing the IBM 7044-94 high speed computer. The logic adapting the magnetic field equations to the computer was written in Fortran 2 and Fortran 4 machine language. A technique for calculating the trajectory of a singly charged particle in the presence of these magnetic fields is presented and the equations solved. The various current-carrying elements may be described in any combination to generate complex magnetic field configurations. The code (MINTRAP) has a routine whereby automatic data plotters may be utilized for plotting magnetic fields or particle trajectories in three dimensions. (Author)
