Nuclear and Particle Physics – Brian R. Martin – 1st Edition

Description

An accessible introduction to nuclear and with equal coverage of both topics, this text covers all the standard topics in particle and nuclear physics thoroughly and provides a few extras, including chapters on experimental methods; applications of nuclear physics including fission, and applications; and unsolved problems for the future.

It includes basic concepts and theory with current and future applications. An excellent for physics and astronomy undergraduates in higher-level courses, this text also serves well as a general reference for graduate studies.
