Item description for Introduction to Nuclear And Particle Physics: Solutions Manual for Second Edition of Text by Das and Ferbel by C. Bromberg, Cliff Chiang, Simon Gough, Ariana Maher, Roge Antonio, Gabriele Forst & Sylvia Yount...

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.

Contents: Rutherford Scattering; Nuclear Phenomenology; Nuclear Models; Nuclear Radiation; Applications of Nuclear Physics; Energy Deposition in Media; Particle Detection; Accelerators; Properties and Interactions of Elementary Particles; Symmetries; Discrete Transformations; Neutral Kaons, Oscillations, and CP Violation; Formulation of the Standard Model; Standard Model and Confrontation with Data; Beyond the Standard Model.

Misleading Ad  Apr 23, 2007
The ad conveniently hides the fact that this is a solutions manual for the author's text and does not link to the text book. What a rip off.
Weak on the standard model!  May 16, 2000
I used this book for a 3rd year university course in subatomic physics. What I particularly liked was the two chapters on symmetries, which were thorough compared to what i have seen in comparable textbooks. I also found the chapters on nuclear physics quite good, as they gave a very compact presentation of the most important aspects of this subject. The weakest part of the book in my opinion is the chapter on the standard model.

If you don't know math and quantum mechanics you shouldn't buy this book as it is somewhat mathematical in style and uses fewer words than many comparable textbooks. Readers who want a historical treatment of the subject matter should look elsewhere too, as this book tells little about the experiments that were instrumental in developing subatomic physics.
