Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book supplies users with an interactive experience for nuclear visualization via a computer-graphical interface, similar in principle to the molecular visualizations already available in chemistry. Models of the Atomic Nucleus explains the nucleus in a way that makes nuclear physics as comprehensible as chemistry or cell biology. The book supplements virtually any of the current textbooks in nuclear physics by providing a means for 3D visual display of the diverse models of nuclear structure.  After a review of the basics, the book explores and compares the competing models, and addresses how the lattice model best resolves remaining controversies. The appendix explains how to obtain the most from the software provided on extras.springer.com. This new edition has been updated completely and expanded to cover recent developments in low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), and to show how the fcc nucleon lattice explains both the asymmetric fragments produced by the fission of Uranium and the symmetric fragmens produced by the fission of Palladium.

A well written summary of Professor Cook et al. work on the solid state model for the atomic nucleus. It addresses head on the inconsistencies of traditional nuclear theory and proposes a solid state model for the nucleus. It contains far more words than equations and has provided me a very strong incentive to consult the cited refences to get more of the details. It is the first nuclear physics text to address in a rational way some of the results of the low energy nuclear reaction experiments that have been reported in the litrerature. Highly recommended for nuclear physicists and nuclear engineers that are not convinced that low energy nuclear physics is a dead science whose problems have all been solved.

This book is an enormous steaming pile of crap, and it is laughable that Springer actually published it. A great April Fools' Day joke on them. Cook is a well-known LENR loon who has never been right about anything LENR, and his perfect record remains intact. He is Andrea Rossi's chief theoretician, which pretty much says it all. Don't waste yout time or money on this delusional nonsense. If he had anything worthwhile, then he and Rossi could publish it in the Journal of Applied Physics or a similar peer-reviewed publication.

This text is well written and describes the history of the subject well and extends it to new applications such as Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). It also provides good visualization software. I am looking forward to the 2014 edition.

Just the book I've needed for my own work! So far, it seems well written, clear, and very helpful.
And his geometric thesis parallels my own.
