Accepted: 3 January 2007
Constant-phase Poincaré sections were used to assess the stability of rectilinear motions in a sextupole rf trap. A simple method for exploring the main domain of stability is proposed. Using numerical algorithms, the nonlinear and nonautonomous motion is analyzed in some interesting regions of the phase space.
