Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell by Carlos A. Bertulani

By Carlos A. Bertulani

Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell offers a transparent, concise, and up to date evaluation of the atomic nucleus and the theories that search to provide an explanation for it. Bringing jointly a scientific clarification of hadrons, nuclei, and stars for the 1st time in a single quantity, Carlos A. Bertulani offers the center fabric wanted by way of graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars of physics to procure an exceptional figuring out of nuclear and particle technology. Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell is the definitive new source for a person contemplating a profession during this dynamic field.

The publication opens via environment nuclear physics within the context of effortless particle physics after which indicates how basic versions grants an figuring out of the homes of nuclei, either of their floor states and excited states, and likewise of the character of nuclear reactions. It then describes: nuclear elements and their features; nuclear interactions; nuclear constitution, together with the liquid-drop version process, and the nuclear shell version; and up to date advancements corresponding to the nuclear mean-field and the nuclear physics of very gentle nuclei, nuclear reactions with risky nuclear beams, and the function of nuclear physics in strength construction and nucleosynthesis in stars.

Throughout, discussions of concept are strengthened with examples that supply functions, hence supporting scholars of their studying and research of present literature. every one bankruptcy closes with difficulties, and appendixes handle helping technical topics.
