Lectures on nuclear theory

Smorodinsky. Concise graduate-level advent to key features of nuclear idea: nuclear forces, nuclear constitution, nuclear reactions, pi-mesons, interactions of pi-mesons with nucleons, extra. in keeping with landmark sequence of lectures by means of famous Russian physicist. ". .. a true jewel of an uncomplicated advent into the most strategies of nuclear concept.

Supersymmetry in Quantum and Classical Mechanics

Following Witten's extraordinary discovery of the quantum mechanical scheme during which all of the salient positive aspects of supersymmetry are embedded, SCQM (supersymmetric classical and quantum mechanics) has develop into a separate sector of study . in recent times, development during this box has been dramatic and the literature keeps to develop.
