"A Practical Introduction to Beam Physics and Particle Accelerators" by Santiago Bernal

We are pleased to announce the publication of "A Practical Introduction to Beam Physics and Particle Accelerators" by Santiago Bernal


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.

About the Author

Santiago Bernal is an Associate Research Scientist in the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP) at the University of Maryland. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Maryland in 1999. He has been a leading experimentalist on the University of Maryland Electron Ring since joining IREAP. Dr. Bernal's research interests are beam and accelerator physics, all aspects of experimental physics of intense charged particles beams (instrumentation, diagnostics, computer simulations). He is also interested in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics in general and in educational aspects of physics.
