About this Textbook

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…”

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The monography by Peter Ring and Peter Schuck covers the techniques used to solve the nuclear many-body problem … . is recognized as a reference by the nuclear physics community. Theoretical developments are explained pedagogically, with a constant rigour, are well documented and are illustrated with suitably chosen examples. The book contains a lot of references … . It is served by a concise style. By its scope and rigour, it has no real rival and will expectedly remain a familiar introductory text in nuclear structure theory for many years." (Joseph Cugnon, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"In many ways, the 1950s through to the 1970s may be seen as a golden period for the development of nuclear physics, both experimental and theoretical. … The book contains an excellent description of many basic theoretical methods, which continue to be relevant today, it is still of value to specialist students of nuclear theory." (J. P. Elliott, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (6), 2005)
