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 physics thoroughly and provides a few extras, chapters on experimental ; applications of physics including fission, fusion and biomedical applications; and unsolved for the future.

It includes basic 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 general for graduate studies.
