Description - Basic Ideas and Concepts in Nuclear Physics by Kris L. G. Heyde

This is the third edition of an established textbook on nuclear physics for senior undergraduates and postgraduate students. It will also provide an accessible introduction to the subject for physicists in other fields. Basic Ideas and Concepts in Nuclear Physics sets out in a clear and consistent manner the various elements of nuclear physics. Divided into four main parts: the constituents and characteristics of the nucleus; nuclear interactions, including the strong, weak and electromagnetic forces; an introduction to nuclear structure; and recent developments in nuclear structure research, the book delivers a balanced account of both theoretical and experimental nuclear physics. In addition to the numerous revisions and updates to the previous edition to capture the developments in the subject over the last five years, the book contains a new chapter on the structure and stability of very light nuclei. As with the previous edition the author retains a comprehensive set of problems and the book contains a well-chosen set of diagrams, and topics are illustrated throughout by box features which contain examples of recent experimental and theoretical research results.
