This container is an implementation of the popular MAD8 beam dynamics code. This code is hard to come by now, and even harder to get working.
MAD8 is the predecessor code to MADX, but is still popular with some people; this container should standardise the version being used.
It is derived from a version of the code available at DESY, and relies on some libraries from 2006, still hosted at CERN. All the prerequisites are mirrored on out github account, here: https://github.com/manacc/mad8-desy.
