This quantity offers, with a few amplification, the notes at the lectures on nuclear physics given via Enrico Fermi on the collage of Chicago in 1949.

"The compilers of this book can be warmly congratulated. . . . The scope of this direction is fantastic: inside 240 pages it levels from the overall homes of atomic nuclei and nuclear forces to mesons and cosmic rays, and comprises an account of fission and uncomplicated pile concept. . . . The path addresses itself to experimenters instead of to experts in nuclear idea, even though the latter also will vastly cash in on its research because of the sound emphasis laid far and wide at the experimental method of difficulties. . . . there's a copious provide of problems."—Proceedings of the actual Society

"Only a comparatively few scholars are privileged to wait Professor Fermi's terrific lectures on the collage of Chicago; it's hence a different contribution to the fans of nuclear technology that his lecture fabric has been systematically prepared in a ebook and made to be had to a much broader audience."—Nucelonics
