The main purpose of this book is to give a concise account of the fundamentals of the physics of the nuclei and particles and applications of nuclear energy. Its coverage extends the conventional aspects of the subject as it has become very evident in recent years that much of the great body of knowledge of nuclei, acquired several decades ago, is highly relevant to other field such as solid state, modern spectroscopy, chemistry, biological / medical physics and technology of power production.

A comprehensive, unified treatment of present-day nuclear physics-the fresh edition of a classic text/reference. "A fine and thoroughly up-to-date textbook on nuclear physics . . . most welcome." -Physics Today (on the First Edition). What sets Introductory Nuclear Physics apart from other books on the subject is its presentation of nuclear physics as an integral part of modern physics. Placing the discipline within a broad historical and scientific context, it makes important connections to other fields such as elementary particle physics and astrophysics. Now fully revised and updated, this Second Edition explores the changing directions in nuclear physics, emphasizing new developments and current research-from superdeformation to quark-gluon plasma. Author Samuel S.M. Wong preserves those areas that established the First Edition as a standard text in university physics departments, focusing on what is exciting about the discipline and providing a concise, thorough, and accessible treatment of the fundamental aspects of nuclear properties. In this new edition, Professor Wong: * Includes a chapter on heavy-ion reactions-from high-spin states to quark-gluon plasma * Adds a new chapter on nuclear astrophysics * Relates observed nuclear properties to the underlying nuclear interaction and the symmetry principles governing subatomic particles * Regroups material and appendices to make the text easier to use * Lists Internet links to essential databases and research projects * Features end-of-chapter exercises using real-world data. Introductory Nuclear Physics, Second Edition is an ideal text for courses in nuclear physics at the senior undergraduate or first-year graduate level. It is also an important resource for scientists and engineers working with nuclei, for astrophysicists and particle physicists, and for anyone wishing to learn more about trends in the field.

Nuclear Physics has been occupying continuously an important place in any University course in physics at the graduate and PG levels in India. The main purpose of A Text Book on Nuclear Physics is to give a concise account of the fundamentals of the physics of the nuclei and particles and applications of nuclear energy. Its coverage extends the conventional aspects of the subject, because it has become very evident in recent years that much of the great body of knowledge of nuclei, acquired several decades ago, is highly relevant to other field such as solid state, modern spectroscopy, chemistry, biological / medical physics and technology of power production. In a book of moderate size it is not possible to give a comprehensive treatment, in depth, of the whole of subatomic physics, for the student community at the degree level. However, I have tried to add my experience of teaching, 4 credit semester courses, on the subject a few years during my tenure (1971 - 2000) to the M.Sc. students at the Department of Physics of the University of Kerala, Kariavattom campus, Thiruvananthapuram. My experience in research in the field of Mossbauer spectroscopy has certainly an impact in the quality of the contents of the book. Further, as an author of four books, I could prepare this book in its own uniqueness for instance providing student friendly features. I have incorporated a good deal of Worked out Examples with solutions at appropriate places and Review Questions including their answers at the end of each Chapter. Outline solutions are deliberately avoided so as to reduce the volume of the book. I have kept the mathematics as simple as possible. I assume knowledge of the basics of special relativity and basic quantum mechanics The many bibliographic references have been arranged in alphabetical list to enable students as well as faculty, for their academic references. The present book is designed rather to meet the needs of the academic community who wishes to adopt the whole or parts of the book as a text for the prescribed syllabus of any course containing nuclear physics. It is hoped that the book will be of interest to those whose work lies inter-disciplinary fields, for example health physics, industrial physics, and related fields.

book provides a clear and concise discussion of basic concepts of nuclear physics to be covered in a one semester course in nuclear physics offered in colleges and universities. This course can be taken by physics and nuclear engineering seniors and graduate students, who have taken one semester of quantum mechanics and a course in math. Methods of physics. This book begins with the general properties of nuclei. In chapters 2 and 3 it discusses the nature of nuclear force as learned from the properties of deuteron and from the two body interactions of (n, n ), (n, p) and (p, p) pairs. In chapter 4 it gives discussion of the nuclear structure in terms of different nuclear models such as shell, collective vibration and rotation, unified and liquid drop. The models are applicable in different mass regions of nuclei. In chapter 5, discussion is given about \, and - ray modes of decay of unstable nuclei. Chapter 6 deals with different types of nuclear reactions induced by n, p, d, t, \- particles etc. These reactions are compound nucleus formation, direct reactions, such as stripping, knock out, pick up reactions, photonuclear reactions, nuclear fission and nuclear fusion etc. Chapter 7 gives a brief discussion of application of nuclear physics to other fields such as bio medical, nuclear energy, industry, crime detection and astrophysics. In chapter 8, I have given conceptual problems related to each chapter. The main feature of this book is that it gives a coherent treatment of each topic of nuclear physics in the proper order. Book Review Basic concepts of nuclear physics written by Jagadish B. Garg, Physics Professor, State University at Albany is a timely book. To my knowledge no other text book on this subject had been published in recent years. This book is written in a clear, concise and orderly fashion. The book begins with a discussion of the discovery of nucleus by Lord Rutherford and then describes all the basic properties of nuclei. In chapters 2and 3, the author discusses the nucleon nucleon force determined by properties of deuterons and from interaction of pairs of nucleons. In chapter 4, he discusses nuclear structure as described by shell, collective rotation, vibration, unified and liquid drop models. In chapter 5, he discusses various nuclear modes such as alpha, beta and gamma decay of unstable nuclei, In chapter 6, he discusses nuclear reactions induced by neutrons, protons, deuterons, He 3, He 4 and triton particles, photo nuclear reactions, nuclear fission and fusion. Theoretical treatment of these topics is appropriate for an introductory survey course in nuclear physics. Chapter 7 gives a brief discussion of application of nuclear physics to nuclear energy, to medical field such as diagnostic and treatment of human diseases, application to astro-physics, crime detection and determination of pollution in the environment The author is internationally known for his extensive research on many topics of nuclear physics. The author should be complimented for a clear and concise discussion of all important topics of nuclear physics. This book is suitable for a one semester survey course in nuclear physics to be given in physics and nuclear engineering departments. I have taught introductory course in nuclear physics at Renssaeler Polytecnique Institute for many years and would have adopted this book if it was then available. I would recommend this book to other professors teaching an introductory survey course on nuclear physics. - Norman Francis, Adjunct Professor at RPI(retired) Fellow of American Nuclear Society

Die Grundidee dieses einf]hrenden Lehrbuchs besteht darin, eine einheitliche Darstellung von Kern- und Teilchenphysik aus experimenteller Sicht zu geben. Die Reduktion der komplex aufgebauten Materie der Atomkerne und Nukleonen auf wenige Grundbausteine und Wechselwirkungen ist die erste Botschaft dieses Buchs. Der zweite Teil, der den Aufbau von Nukleonen und Kernen aus diesen Grundbausteinen beschreibt, macht deutlich, dass Komplexitdt, die aus der Vielkvrperwechselwirkung entsteht, in immer grv_erem Ma_ die Gesetzmd_igkeiten der zusammengesetzten Systeme bestimmt. Behandelt wird die Kernmaterie bei hohen Temperaturen und die Rolle von Kern- und Teilchenphysik bei astrophysikalischen Vorgdngen. Die neue Auflage bietet stark ]berarbeitete \bungsaufgaben und eine ganze Reihe von Ergdnzungen und Verbesserungen, besonders in der Neutrinophysik und beim doppelten Betazerfall. Das in straffem und klarem Stil abgefasste Lehrbuch eignet sich gut als Begleittext zu den einf]hrenden Vorlesungen an Hochschulen.
