About this book


This successful textbook, now published for the first time in paperback, has been updated to incorporate recent developments in the field of Nuclear Reactions. Chapters 1 and 2 are intended to provide an overview of the subject which can be readily understood by the reader approaching Nuclear Reactions for the first time. Chapter 3 reviews scattering theory with emphasis on the underlying physical ideas. The physical models which have been developed to account for the various aspects of nuclear reaction phenomena are described in more detail in Chapter 4. Review of the first edition: 'Satchler's book, after an excellent introductory chapter, and an extensive section on basic scattering theory, covers in detail all the theories and models which have formed the basis of our understanding of nuclear reactions over the past 20 years. The treatment is authoritative...the descriptive material is excellent.' Nature
