Overview

An introductory nuclear physics text with a difference. Aimed primarily at final-year undergraduates, it covers the range of material usually found in texts at this level. However, it also recognises that most of these students are unlikely to go on to specialise, and hence unlikely to appreciate the linkage between nuclear physics and other subjects. Emphasis is therefore placed on macroscopic features of the subject matter, such as astrophysics and reactor theory.
