Description: Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering reviews important results of modern physics, introduces the theory of radioactivity and radiation, and surveys applications in multiple disciplines. Since the publication of the successful first edition, there have been numerous advances in the field. In medicine, accelerator based teletherapy and electron-beam therapy have become standard. New demands in national security have stimulated major advances in nuclear instrumentation. Diverse reactor designs have been introduced as a result of a renaissance in nuclear power. This second edition addresses all of these issues and provides additional problems along with an updated solutions manual.
