Modern Atomic and Nuclear Physics
by C. Sharp Cook
Publisher: Van Nostrand 1961
Number of pages: 296
This book is intended for the college or university student who has completed at least one year of classical physics and mathematics through calculus. The general coverage of the subject of atomic and nuclear physics, as is done in this book, provides the student who is planning to continue his studies of physics a reason able base for a more meaningful understanding of many of the advanced texts and courses that he encounters later.
