About this Textbook

The field of nuclear physics is entering the 21st century while experiencing a strong revival. On the one hand it is changing qualitatively through new experimental developments that allow us to direct radioactive and other exotic probes to target nuclei, and spark off extremely energetic nuclear collisions. Also, the impressive sophistication of new detector systems leads us to expect a number of new discoveries in the near future. On the other hand many new applications have appeared in fields as diverse as medicine, industry, art, archaeology and the environmental sciences. This book is a set of extended lectures on basic and new topics, that gives a tutorial introduction to the field of modern nuclear physics. It is ideally suited to bridging the gap between the standard textbook material and the research literature, and provides the necessary foundation for acting as those who intend to work in any of the many disciplines where nuclear science and technology is going to play an important role in the future.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book is certainly of interest to graduate students and researchers involved in one of the topics treated, since it bridges the gap between a standard textbook and the research literature. Also the extensive list of references at the end of each chapter is a very useful tool for people willing to explore the subject into more detail. The book is very well edited, in the good Springer tradition." (Physicalia, 38/4, 2002)

"This book is a quality presentation of the talks presented at a Summer School held in Seville in 2000. The topics covered include … NN interactions, the Shell Model, Interacting Boson models, collective motion, halo nuclei and the organizers of the school did manage to attract renowned researchers in these areas such as Witold Nazarewicz, Peter Ring, Walter Greiner and Francesco Iachello. … The level is certainly at the advanced graduate level … ." (A. P. Byrne, The Physicist, Vol. 39 (3), 2002)
