Going through the coupling resonance the horizontal tune has been transformed into the vertical tune and vice versa without ever getting equal. 10] are shown in Fig. 11 as a function of the excitation current of a vertically focusing quadrupole. The vertical tune change is proportional to the quadrupole current and so is the parameter r . While increasing the quadrupole current, the vertical tune is increased and the horizontal tune stays practically constant. We note that the tunes actually do not cross the linear coupling resonance during that procedure, rather the tune of one plane is gradually transformed into the tune of the other plane and vice versa.
