Nuclear and Particle Physics – Brian R. Martin – 1st Edition

An accessible introduction to and with equal coverage of both topics, this text covers all the standard topics in particle and nuclear physics thoroughly and provides a few extras, chapters on experimental methods; of nuclear physics including fission, fusion and biomedical ; and unsolved problems for the future.

It includes concepts and theory combined with current and future applications. An excellent resource for physics and astronomy undergraduates in higher-level courses, this text also serves well as a reference for graduate studies.
