Jean-Luc Vay awarded the 2013 US Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) Prize 04.24.13Announcement

Berkeley scientist Jean-Luc Vay awarded the 2013 US Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) Prize for Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology.External link

The USPAS prize honors individuals by recognizing their outstanding achievements over the full range of accelerator physics and technology. The Award Citation reads: “For original contributions to the development of novel methods for simulating particle beams, particularly the Lorentz boosted frame techniques, and for the successful application of these methods to multi-scale, multi-species problems.” Thanks to the boosted frame technique, simulations that formerly took thousands of hours of computation time can now be performed in a fraction of that time.
