Bohr A., & Mottelson B. Nuclear Structure v ll . 1999. (pdf 43.9 МБ)
Volume II, together with Volume I, contains a systematic treatment of the basis that has been gradually established during the last decades for understanding the vast body of data on nuclear properties and reactions The presentation involves panty a development of the theoretical concepts and mathematical tools and partly a critical analysis of experimental results in terms of these concepts While the first volume is concerned with single-particle motion and the formulation of symmetries. the second volume deals with collective rotational and vibrational motion as well as with the coupling of single-particle mown to the collective degrees o' freedom.
The discussion exploits several different levels of presentation, and this has motivated (he division of the material into text, illustrative examples, and appendices The text represents an attempt at a systematic development of the subject in which each section is based on the concepts explained in previous sections The comparison of theoretical concepts with the experimental evidence is contained in the illustrative examples; these examples are wonted out in considerable detail and involve the lull arsenal of available theoretical tools. The appendices are devoted to the development of general tools of quantal theory and lo the analysis of idealized models that provide useful insight into various aspects of nuclear structure This division of material contributes to making the book self-contained and at the same lime provides the opportunity to elucidate the problems in a variety of different contexts.
The presentation reflects the authors' view or nuclear physics as part of the broad development of concepts describing quantal many-body systems ranging from atoms and condensed matter to the structure of elementary particles Since the more advanced theoretical concepts and mathematical tools employed in the text are explicitly developed, the prerequisites do not go beyond those expected of a graduate student in physics. However, the subject is carried to the limits of our present comprehension in a field that comprises a vast richness of phenomena, and a full understanding of the material may require several stages of study using the different dimensions of the presentation
