    "...This is a very good book indeed..." (Contemporary PhysicsVol. 43, No.3 2002)
    Back cover copy
    Nuclear Physics: Principles and Applications is an introduction to the basic theory and applications of modern nuclear physics. Aimed at students taking a first course in nuclear physics, the text is divided into two broad sections. The first part provides a general introduction to nuclear physics, whilst the latter half focuses on some of the most important and current applications, including nuclear medicine, instrumentation and energy from fission and fusion. Written from an experimental point of view, this text offers the reader many practical examples and problems to help encourage understanding. Although, complex material treatments are avoided, derivations of formulae are given as necessary, but with a minimum mathematical complexity.
    Carefully written and structured, this book will appeal to science and engineering students who reequire an understanding of the fundamental principles of nuclear physics and its applications.
    Nuclear Physics: Principles and Applications
    * is a modern approach to nuclear physics, covering the basic theory and emphasising many of the varied and important applications.
    * Has been carefully written and structured, to allow flexibility in use to match a variety of course needs and requirements.
    * Includes a variety of examples and problems in each chapter, with hints to solving these included in the appendix.
    * Avoids complex and extensive mathematical treatments.
