"It will also be of value for those engaged in any facet of neutron physics research, for Neutrons, Nuclei and Matter provides a first-principles discussion of the fundamental neutron interactions. ... the writing is clear, and the explanations stress essential physical principles. ... The choice of material in Neutrons, Nuclei and Matter provides an excellent survey." -- Physics Today
"Jim Byrne's book is a must for libraries of all universities and laboratories which are engaged in nuclear physics, particle physics, nuclear energy, astrophysics or condensed matter research. ... In this era of savage specialization, it is heartening to see a book which contains enough matter for a dozen modern specialists, no two of which would be likely to find a subject of common interest to discuss. Interdisciplinarity is much talked about and rarely practised; this book, however, provides a nice example. ... Jim Byrne's Neutrons, Nuclei and Matter is an outstanding multidisciplinary introduction to the physics and applications of cold neutrons." -- Physics World
"What is immediately striking is that the book, rich in information, is cross-disciplinary and touches essentially all the main areas of modern physics. ... It is a pleasure to come across a book that is basically just about physics." -- CERN Courier --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
