9780198507246: Nuclear Structure from a Simple Perspective (Oxford Studies in Nuclear Physics)

This textbook on nuclear structure takes a unique approach to the topic, explaining nuclear structure by building on a few elementary physical ideas. Intricate topics such as shell model residual interactions, the Nilsson model, and the RPA analysis of collective vibrations are explained in a simple, intuitive way so that predictions can usually be made without calculations, essentially by inspection. Frequent data comparison shows the relevance of theoretical approaches. New to this edition are chapters on exotic nuclei and radioactive beams,and correlations of collective observables. Completely new discussions are given on isopin, the shell model, nature of collective vibrations, multi- phonon states, superdeformation, bandmixing, the geometric collective model, the fermei gas model, basic properties of simple nuclear potentials, the deuteron, etc.

About the Author:

Richard F. Casten, Professor of Physics, Yale University and Director, Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory

Review:


"Avoiding complicated calculations and complex mathematical formalism, this textbook explains nuclear structure by building on a few basic ideas. Topics like shell model residual interactions, the Nilsson model, and RPA analysis of collective vibrations are explained in ways such that predictions can be made by inspection rather than calculation. This edition includes chapters on exotic nuclei and radioactive beams, and on the evolution of structure. Casten teaches physics at Yale University."--SciTech Book News
