Nuclear Physics - Midway Reprint - A Course Given by Enrico Fermi at the University of Chicago. Revised Edition

by Fermi, Enrico

Condition: Very Good

Chicago & London: University of Chicago Press, 1974. 248 Pages Indexed.Reprint of the 1949 Copyright. There is 3 inch creae at the top of the back cover and the covers have very minor edge wear. Course notes compiles by Jay Orear, A.H. Rosenfeld, and R.A. Schluter. This material is a reproduction, with some amplification, of our notes on lectures in Physics 262-3: Nuclear Physics, given by Enrico Fermi, Jan.-June 1949. The course covered a large number of topics, both experimental and theoretical. The lectures presupposed a familiarity with physics generally acquired by a student who has completed one course in quantum meohanics to include a discussion of the Pauli spin operators and of perturbation theory, both time-independent and time-dependent. The editors make some use of elementary concepts of such topics as statistical mechanics and electrodynamics and a reader could probably pick up the necessary ideas as he goes along, or omit a few sections. Dr. Fermi has not read this material; he is not responsible for errors. We have made some attempt to confine the classroom presentation to the text proper, putting much of our amplifications in footnotes, appendices, and in the solutions to the problems. Most of the problems were assigned in class. The solutions are not from Dr. Fermi. The literature references in the text apply to the list on page 239. At the end of the book there is a summary of the notation and a list of pertinent constants, values, and relationships. . Trade Paperback. Very Good. 6" x 9".
