In this post, we will see the book Lectures On Nuclear Theory by L. D. Landau; Ya. Smorodinsky.
About the book
This book is based on a series of lectures delivered to experimental physicists by one of the authors (L. Landau) in Moscow in 1954.
In maintaining the lecture form in the printed edition we are emphasizing the fact that the presentation makes no pretense at completeness and that the choice of subject matter is purely arbitrary.
Since there is, at the present time, no rational theory of nuclear forces, we have limited our conclusions concerning nuclear structure to those which can be reached from an analysis of the available experimental data, using only general quantum-mechanical relations.
No attempt has been made to give a bibliography of the literature; rather we have indicated only new experimental results.
The book was translated from Russian and was published in 1959.
