Careers in Atomic Energy
by Loyce McIlhenny - US Atomic Energy Commission , 1964
Nuclear energy is playing a vital role in the life of every man today. It is essential that all Americans gain an understanding of this vital force if they are to realize fully the myriad benefits that nuclear energy offers them.
Theoretical Nuclear Physics
by John M. Blatt, Victor F. Weisskopf - Wiley , 1952
A clear and cogent investigation of key aspects of theoretical nuclear physics by leading experts: the nucleus, nuclear forces, nuclear spectroscopy, two-, three- and four-body problems, nuclear reactions, beta-decay and nuclear shell structure.
A short course on Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions
by A. K. Chaudhuri - arXiv , 2012
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.
Applications of chiral perturbation theory to lattice QCD

This book brings new research insights on the properties and behavior of gamma radiation, studies from a wide range of options of gamma radiation applications in Nuclear Physics, industrial processes, Environmental Science, Radiation Biology, etc.
by Amir Zacarias Mesquita - InTech , 2012
A comprehensive review of nuclear reactors technology from authors across the globe. Topics include: Flow Instability in Material Testing Reactors; Decay Heat and Nuclear Data; Improving the Performance of the Power Monitoring Channel; and more.
Radioisotopes: Applications in Physical Sciences
by Nirmal Singh - InTech , 2011
The book Radioisotopes - Applications in Physical Sciences is divided into three sections namely: Radioisotopes and Some Physical Aspects, Radioisotopes in Environment and Radioisotopes in Power System Space Applications.
Nuclear and Particle Physics
by Niels Walet - UMIST , 2003
In these lecture notes the author shall discuss nuclear and particle physics on a somewhat phenomenological level. The mathematical sophistication shall be rather limited, with an emphasis on the physics and on symmetry aspects.
Modern Atomic and Nuclear Physics
