Mathematical Physics for Nuclear Experiments


International Edition

About the Book

Mathematical Physics for Nuclear Experiments presents an accessible introduction to the mathematical derivations of key equations used in describing and analysing results of typical nuclear physics experiments. Instead of merely showing results and citing texts, crucial equations in nuclear physics such as the Bohr's classical formula, Bethe's quantum mechanical formula for energy loss, Poisson, Gaussian and Maxwellian distributions for radioactive decay, and the Fermi function for beta spectrum analysis, among many more, are presented with the mathematical bases of their derivation and with their physical utility.

This approach provides readers with a greater connection between the theoretical and experimental sides of nuclear physics. The book also presents connections between well-established results and ongoing research. It also contains figures and tables showing results from the author's experiments and those of his students to demonstrate experimental outcomes.

This is a valuable guide for advanced undergraduates and early graduates studying nuclear instruments and methods, medical and health physics courses as well as experimental particle physics courses.

Key features

  • Contains over 500 equations connecting theory with experiments.
  • Presents over 80 examples showing physical intuition and illustrating concepts.
  • Includes 80 exercises, with solutions, showing applications in nuclear and medical physics.

About the Author:

Andrew Ekpenyong is a professor at Creighton University, USA. He earned his PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2012. He obtained a Master of Science degree in Physics in 2007 from Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, USA, where he teaches Nuclear Instruments and Methods, Quantum Mechanics, Physics of Radiation Therapy, Dosimetry and Radiation Protection, Biophysics as well as General Physics. He has supervised research and taught both graduates and undergraduates at Technical University, Dresden, Germany and Creighton University, USA. Dr Ekpenyong has authored/co-authored several articles in peer-reviewed journals in physics and medical physics. His research has ranged from the physics of cancer (a new frontier bordering on the mechanical properties of cancer cells and their role in cancer disease and metastasis) to the physics of radiation therapy.
