Particle physics is the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. Nuclear physics is the scientific study of the forces, reactions, and internal structures of atomic nuclei. Increasingly both nuclear and particle physics are taught together at undergraduate level and it is usually a compulsory course for physics and astronomy undergraduates in their third year.
This text is an accessible, balanced introduction to nuclear and particle physics and is suitable for those taking short courses in the subject. It provides a readable and up-to-date overview of both the theoretical and experimental aspects of nuclear and particle physics. It also includes a comprehensive set of problems at the end of each chapter, plus solutions.
