In order to maximize beam lifetime in circular particle accelerators, the nonlinear beam optics are optimized to maximize the dynamic aperture of the beam. The dynamic aperture (DA), which is a 6-D phase space volume of stable trajectories, depends on the strength of the nonlinearities in the machine, and is calculated via particle tracking. Current DA optimization processes include multi-objective genetic algorithm optimizers, and relies on minimizing the magnitudes of resonance driving terms (RDT), which are calculated from the nonlinear contribution to the one-turn-map. The process of searching through the parameter space for an ideal combination that maximizes DA is computationally strenuous. By setting up the sextupole channel such that it is resembles a symplectic integrator of a smooth Hamiltonian, with only a few sextupoles we are able to closely reproduce phase space trajectories of a smooth Hamiltonian up to the hyperbolic point. No chaos and resonances are observed if phase advance per one sextupole magnet in the channel does not exceed ~0.12x2 pi. Therefore, an important property of the suggested approach is the intrinsic elimination of the resonances, and minimization of corresponding RDTs.
