About this book

Introduction

Relativity plays an important role in atomic nuclei, and, since the early 1970s, there has been increasing interest in, and literature on, the nucleus as a relativistic system. In fact, the relativistic treatment provides a powerful method to describe nuclear structure and reactions. It is thus an ideal time to collect and review the important landmarks in this book. Directed to advanced students and researchers, it explains both the underlying relativistic theory and compares predictions with actual experiments.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Relativity plays an important role in atomic nuclei. … The authors focus on a discussion of the most recent material in the relativistic description of nuclei. … Several appendices are added to help the reader to understand relativistic many-body theory. The book is an interesting compilation of the developments in the last 30 years in the field of nuclear structure, and an optimal source for people to get a quick update … . It is aimed at advanced students and researchers." (Roland Carchon, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 28 (1), 2006)
