Neutron Physics covers the whole range of knowledge of this complex science, discussing the basics of neutron physics and some principles of neutron physics calculations. Because neutron physics is the essential part of reactor physics, it is the main subject taught to students of Nuclear Engineering. This book takes an instructional approach. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Curtiss, Leon Francis, Introduction to neutron physics. Princeton, N.J., Van Nostrand [] (OCoLC) An Introduction to the Neutron Kinetics of Nuclear Power Reactors introduces the reader to the neutron kinetics of nuclear power reactors. Topics covered include the neutron physics of reactor kinetics, feedback effects, water-moderated reactors, fast reactors, and methods of plant control. (1) Preface: "This book will challenge the minds of even the best undergraduate students," and "cgs units are used for all calculations except scaling arguments," and "some instructors might therefore elect to use 'The Physical Universe' for a junior or senior level introduction to astrophysics."Cited by:

Elementary introduction to nuclear reactor physics. This book gives an elementary but coherent account of that branch of physics involved in the study and design of nuclear reactors at a standard presentation judged to be suitable for advanced undergraduate students. Author(s): Liverhant, S. E. Introduction. Pulsars are highly magnetized, rapidly rotating neutron stars. They are also astrophysical laboratories for the study of extreme physics. This wiki-book describes the observational and theoretical research relating to such stars. There's no doubt that pulsars . Book Description. INTRODUCTION TO NUCLEAR REACTOR PHYSICS is the most comprehensive, modern and readable textbook for this course/module. It explains reactors, fuel cycles, radioisotopes, radioactive materials, design, and operation. Chain reaction and fission reactor concepts are presented, plus advanced coverage including neutron diffusion. Physics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for active researchers, academics and students of physics. Introduction to neutron star physics. Ask Question Asked 8 years, 3 months ago. Active 3 years, Finally, if you seek for real rigor, a new book by Friedman & Stergioulas is must.

No previous knowledge of the theory of thermal neutron scattering is assumed, but basic knowledge of quantum mechanics and solid state physics is required. The book is intended for experimenters rather than theoreticians, and the discussion is kept as informal as by: This book is based upon a series of lectures I have occasionally given at the University of Gottingen since They were meant to introduce the students of experimental physics to the work in a neutron physics laboratory dealing with the problem of measuring neutron flux, diffusion length, Fermi age, effective neutron temperature, absorption cross sections and similar problems. Neutron Cross Sections, Volume 1: Neutron Resonance Parameters and Thermal Cross Sections, Part A represents the fourth edition of what was previously known as BNL, Neutron Cross Sections, Volume 1. This three-chapter book provides the extensive list of .   Nuclear Science and Technology, Volume 2: Neutron Physics provides information pertinent to neutron and reactor physics. This book presents a discussion of the general area of energy sources, surveying the fusion problem. Organized into 16 Pages:
