Santiago Bernal obtained a BSc in physics from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá, Colombia in 1981, a MSc in physics from Georgia Tech in 1983, and a PhD in physics from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1999. He is the junior coauthor with Charles L Joseph (Rutgers University) of Modern Devices: The Simple Physics of Modern Technology (Wiley, 2015). In addition to beam and accelerator physics, Dr. Bernal is interested in statistical mechanics and educational aspects of physics.

Summary:This book provides a brief exposition of the principles of beam physics and particle accelerators with an emphasis on numerical examples employing readily available computer tools. However, it avoids detailed derivations, instead inviting 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 readers to readily identify relevant design parameters and their scaling. In addition, the computer input files can serve as templates that can be easily adapted to other related situations.
