This long-standing introductory text thoroughly describes
nuclear many-body theory, with an emphasis on methodology
and the technical aspects of the theories that have been
used to describe the nucleus. Now available in a more
affordable softcover edition, the original contents of
"The Nuclear Many-Body Problem” presented here is intended
for students with basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and
some understanding of nuclear phenomena.

From the reviews –
"Its scope and complexity are suitable for easy reading
by beginning students of nuclear theory. With a crisp and
concise style, the authors quickly develop the shell-model
approach to the nuclear many-body problem and subsequently
devote more than a third of the text to Hartree-Fock and
related models…”
