The book bridges the gap between a course on modem physics and an advanced formal treatise on Nuclear Physics. The treatment of topics is less formal, simple and direct. Physical ideas are given prominence and this has been done by informal discussions and many analogies. It starts with the tools of nuclear physics, both experimental and mathematical. Author has taken the special care in treating the nuclear shell model throughout the analogy with atomic and molecular physics is taken advantage of. It is suitable text for any student who has been exposed to a college level course in modern physics and mathematical competence at the level of calculus and elementary vector analysis. An important feature of the book is that numerous illustrative examples have been given. This should help in developing and sustaining student`s interest and motivating him. The effort is augmented by about 200 neatly drawn figures and problem question sets. Printed Pages: 632. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Mai 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 244x164x22 mm. Neuware - This volume covers invited papers presented during the La Rábida 2015 International Scientific Meeting on Nuclear Physics, which can be considered heir of a well known series of triennial international summer schools on Nuclear Physics organized from 1982 till 2003 by the Basic Nuclear Physics group in the University of Sevilla. The La Rábida 2015 meeting offered to graduate students and young researchers a broad view of the field of Nuclear Physics. The first invited speaker presented the state-of-the-art of Relativistic Mean Field calculations. The second set of notes covers selected topics in gamma ray spectroscopy with exotic nuclei. The third speaker presented an introduction to the subject of severe accidents in nuclear power plants. In the fourth set of notes, the author illustrated how to use laser spectroscopy to determine very important observables of atomic nuclei. The fifth speaker devoted its notes to explain several aspects of neutrino physics. Finally, the sixth speaker presented an overview of nuclear medicine and radiodiagnostic. In addition to this, the inclusion of the posters and seminars presented by the students gives a fresh and ample perspective on the many different problems of interest nowadays for the Nuclear Physics community. 211 pp. Englisch.
