Santiago Bernal taught college physics and maths in both Colombia and Puerto Rico before going on to receive his PhD under the direction of the late Professor Martin Reiser at Maryland, College Park. Dr. Bernal joined the UMER group in 2000 as a postdoc, later becoming a research scientist at the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). Besides beam and accelerator physics, Dr. Bernal is interested in statistical mechanics and educational aspects of physics.

Summary:This book is a brief exposition of the principles of beam physics and particle accelerators with emphasis on numerical examples employing readily available computer tools. Avoiding detailed derivations, we invite the reader to use general high-end languages such as Mathcad and Matlab, as well as specialized particle accelerator codes (e.g. MAD, WinAgile, Elegant, and others) to explore the principles presented. This approach allows the student to readily identify relevant design parameters and their scaling and easily adapt computer input files to other related situations.
Target Audience:Students (advanced undergraduate to young researchers).
