Nuclear Science: A Teachers Guide to the Nuclear Science Wall Chart
by Howard Matis
Publisher: CPEP 2003
You don't have to be a nuclear physicist to understand nuclear science. The Nuclear Science Wall Chart has been created to explain to a broad audience the basic concepts of nuclear structure, radioactivity, and nuclear reactions as well as to highlight current areas of research and excitement in the field.

Some concepts in relativistic heavy ion collisions are discussed. To a large extent, the discussions are non-comprehensive and non-rigorous. It is intended for graduate students who are intending to pursue career in high energy nuclear physics.

We present a brief survey of the development of nuclear physics towards relativistic quark physics. This is followed by a discussion of the quest for the observation of the dissolution of nuclear matter into the deconfined quark matter ...
