NUCLEAR PHYSICS

Physics 561
( T+Th 9.30 am, PAB 109 )



This is the second quarter of the modern Nuclear Physics sequence. 
We will be focusing on hadronic physics and tools that have been developed and/or discovered to understand
and calculate strong interaction processes.

The minimum prerequisite is  the first quarter of the sequence.
 
 

There is currently no good text for this course, although the book by Donoghue, Golowich and Holstein on the Standard Model
will likely be the most useful.

Other texts that may be  useful are

  • Pions and Nuclei  by     T. Ericson and W. Weise     (ISBN-0-19-852008-5)
