Abstract: The subsequent steps on improvement of the numerical methods for solution of the stochastic cooling simulation are described. The algorithmic approach for improvement of solution of one dimensional Fokker - Planck equation (FPE) is presented in the paper. This approach is based on a multiscale simulation algorithm to increase the accuracy of the FPE solution.

Keywords: stochastic cooling, Fokker - Planck equation, momentum spread, antiproton beam.
