This comprehensive text provides an introduction to basic nuclear physics, including nuclear decays and reactions and nuclear structure, while covering the essential areas of basic research and practical applications.
Its emphasis on phenomonology and the results of real experiments distinguish this from all other texts available. Discussions of theory are reinforced with This comprehensive text provides an introduction to basic nuclear physics, including nuclear decays and reactions and nuclear structure, while introxuctory the essential areas of basic research and practical applications.
Introductory Nuclear Physics by Kenneth S. Krane
Discussions of theory are reinforced with examples which illustrate and apply the theoretical formulism, thus aiding students in their reading and analysis of current literature. The text is designed to provide a core of material for students with minimal background in mathematics or quantum theory and offers more sophisticated material in separate sections. Hardcoverpages.

Jul 15, Dr M rated it did not like it Shelves: Part of the Goodreads blurb for Krane’s textbook on nuclear physics reads: The text is designed to provide a core of material for students with minimal background in mathematics or quantum theory and offers Part of the Goodreads blurb for Krane’s textbook on nuclear physics reads: In practice, the result is a book that is the epitome of what is wrong with so many American science textbooks: The volume phyysics in at slightly less than black-hole forming mass.
In his attempt to explain nuclear phyisics, the essential theory of which requires using quantum mechanics as well as a lot of mathematics, to a reader lacking the appropriate background, Nuvlear has produced a text that talks a lot, pysics provides no real introdductory. This is fine if an end result is all you need, but if the aim is to give an understanding of nuclear physics — i. Shying away from mathematical detail and true step-by-step derivations in phyics textbooks usually does more harm than good.
While physical understanding is not in the mathematics, it is also impossible to really attain without mathematics. Any physicist and if you read this book you are assumed to be at least a student of physics must be comfortable reading mathematics. The sheer amount of text itself is also a problem. While explaining thoroughly is a good thing, brevity is also a virtue, especially phyiscs science textbooks, where reading pace is considerably slower than when reading a novel, or a newspaper.
Krane fills page after page with text before getting to the point. I, at least, lose momentum having to plow through pages of text between one thought and the next. The time it takes to just read through Krane’s nuclear-physics epic is better spent letting your brain work with a text that takes nuclear theory seriously. View all 3 comments. Apr 12, Mariana rated it it was ok Shelves: This book has an annoying tendency to skip the calculations and just present the results.
That and the fact that it’s so long and dense and adds a lot of technical details makes it a bit tough to get through.
Add to that the fact that it’s some 30 years behind on fields like particle physics that are developing so quickly and I start to wonder whether there isn’t a better book out there for nuclear physics.

Introductory Nuclear Physics
Dec 06, Peter Sprunger rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is one of two textbooks that you need to study nuclear physics, the other being Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell by Carlos Bertulani.
It uses numerous experimental results to illustrate why we believe what we do about the nucleus. Therefore this book seems a bit wordy while reading, but once you are done with a section you understand the underlying principals, not just the equations needed for manipulation.
I’m just completing my Ph. On nearly everyone’s shelf This is one of two textbooks that you need to study nuclear physics, the other being Nuclear Physics in a Nutshell by Carlos Bertulani.
On nearly everyone’s shelf is an old beat-up i. The only drawback to introducotry book is that it is written for an upper-level undergraduate or a beginning graduate and does not dive into the hairy mathematics that often occur. The textbook by Bertulani takes care of this. Jul 17, Gaurav Goyal added it.
It is very good book for understanding the concept of nuclear physics. Sep 30, Maria rated it really liked it Shelves: The bible of nuclear physics!
