Introductory Nuclear Physics – Kenneth S. Krane – 3rd Edition

Description

This comprehensive text provides an introduction to basic nuclear physics, including nuclear decays and and nuclear structure, while covering the essential areas of basic research and practical .

Its emphasis on phenomonology and the results of real distinguish this from all other texts available. Discussions of theory are reinforced with examples which illustrate and apply the theoretical formulism, thus aiding in their reading and analysis of current literature.

The text is designed to provide a core of material for students with minimal background in mathematics or theory and offers more sophisticated material in separate sections.
