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…” - Physics Today
