' The original edition of Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics was used with great success for single-semester courses on nuclear and particle physics offered by American and Canadian universities at the undergraduate level. It was also translated into German, and used overseas. Being less formal but well-written, this book is a good vehicle for learning the more intuitive rather than formal aspects of the subject. It is therefore of value to scientists with a minimal background in quantum mechanics, but is sufficiently substantive to have been recommended for graduate students interested in the fields covered in the text. In the second edition, the material begins with an exceptionally clear development of Rutherford scattering and, in the four following chapters, discusses sundry phenomenological issues concerning nuclear properties and structure, and general applications of radioactivity and of the nuclear force. This is followed by two chapters dealing with interactions of particles in matter, and how these characteristics are used to detect and identify such particles. A chapter on accelerators rounds out the experimental aspects of the field. The final seven chapters deal with elementary-particle phenomena, both before and after the realization of the Standard Model. This is interspersed with discussion of symmetries in classical physics and in the quantum domain, bringing into full focus the issues concerning CP violation, isotopic spin, and other symmetries. The final three chapters are devoted to the Standard Model and to possibly new physics beyond it, emphasizing unification of forces, supersymmetry, and other exciting areas of current research. The book contains several appendices on related subjects, such as special relativity, the nature of symmetry groups, etc. There are also many examples and problems in the text that are of value in gauging the reader's understanding of the material.

Presentation is very clear and nicely balances the issues of nuclear and particle physics, exposes both theoretical ideas and modern experimental methods. Presentation is also very economic and one can cover most of the book in a one-semester course. In the second edition, the authors updated the contents to reflect the very recent developments in the theory and experiment. They managed to do it without substantial increase of the size of the book. I used the first edition several times to teach the course ‘Introduction to Subatomic Physics’ and I am looking forward to use this new edition to teach the course next year.” Professor Mark Strikman Pennsylvania State University, USA “This book can be recommended to those who find elementary particle physics of absorbing interest.” Contemporary Physics '

Die Grundidee dieses einführenden Lehrbuchs besteht darin, eine einheitliche Darstellung von Kern- und Teilchenphysik aus experimenteller Sicht zu geben. Die Reduktion der komplex aufgebauten Materie der Atomkerne und Nukleonen auf wenige Grundbausteine und Wechselwirkungen ist seine erste Botschaft. Die Botschaft des zweiten Teils, der den Aufbau des Quarks über die Nukleonen zu den Kernen beschreibt, ist, daß Komplexität, die aus der Vielkörper-Wechselwirkung entsteht, immer mehr die Gesetzmäßigkeiten der zusammengesetzten Systeme bestimmt. Entstanden aus Vorlesungen an der Heidelberger Universität eignet sich dieses straff und klar abgefaßte, durch Übungsaufgaben ergänzte Lehrbuch gut als Begleittext zu einführenden Kursusvorlesungen an Hochschulen.

This textbook fills the gap between the very basic and the highly advanced volumes that are widely available on the subject. It offers a concise but comprehensive overview of a number of topics, like general relativity, fission and fusion, which are otherwise only available with much more detail in other textbooks. Providing a general introduction to the underlying concepts (relativity, fission and fusion, fundamental forces), it allows readers to develop an idea of what these two research fields really involve. The book uses real-world examples to make the subject more attractive and encourage the use of mathematical formulae. Besides short scientists' biographies, diagrams, end-of-chapter problems and worked solutions are also included. Intended mainly for students of scientific disciplines such as physics and chemistry who want to learn about the subject and/or the related techniques, it is also useful to high school teachers wanting to refresh or update their knowledge and to interested non-experts.

,,Möchten die ungeheuren Möglichkeiten, die mit der Verwertung der Kernumwand lungen verbunden sind, zum Segen der Menschheit und nicht zu ihrer Vernich tung führen!" 0Tro HAHN Es bedarf wohl keiner besonderen Betonung, daß die Atom-und Kernphysik in den letzten Jahrzehnten immer mehr an Bedeutung gewonnen haben. Mit fortschreitender Vertiefung der Erkenntnisse, der Verwendung immer neuer und gewaltigerer technischer Hilfsmittel in der Forschung und der von Jahr zu Jahr größer werdenden praktischen Bedeutung wachsen naturgemäß auch das ~lgemeine Interesse und der Wunsch nach einer zusammenfassenden Darstellung aller damit verbundenen Grundfragen. Diesem Zweck möchte dieses Buch dienen, das zudem möglichst übersichtlich und leicht verständlich sein soll. Es will vor allem den Studierenden unserer Fachschulen, den Hochschulstudenten, für welche die Physik nicht Hauptfach ist, und allen gebildeten Laien eine Hilfe sein, denen nur elementare mathematische Kenntnisse zur Verfügung stehen. Das Eindringen in die eigentliche Theorie setzt bekanntlich umfangreiche mathematische Hilfsmittel voraus. Um so stärker tritt andererseits das Be dürfnis nach anschaulicher Vorstellung a!lf, was wiederum auf Schwierigkeiten stößt, weil die Hauptgegenstände, um die es hier geht - das Atom, die Elementarteilchen und Energie quanten-, der unmittelbaren Anschauung nicht zugänglich sind. Wenn es der Verfasser dennoch versucht, weitgehend bildliehe Darstellungen heranzuziehen, dann muß betont werden, daß es sich nur um Modell-, also Hilfsvorstellungen handelt, die das Verständnis erleichtern sollen, keinesfalls aber um naturgetreue, vergrößerte Wiedergaben der wirklichen Verhältnisse. In ähnlicher Weise werden auch manche theoretische Grundlagen, z. B. die Unschärfe beziehung, mit möglichst anschaulichen Mitteln erläutert.
