This title provides the latest information on nuclear physics. Based on a course entitled Applications of Nuclear Physics. Written from an experimental point of view this text is broadly divided into two parts, firstly a general introduction to Nuclear Physics and secondly its applications.

  • Includes chapters on practical examples and problems
  • Contains hints to solving problems which are included in the appendix
  • Avoids complex and extensive mathematical treatments
  • A modern approach to nuclear physics, covering the basic theory, but emphasising the many and important applications
