Although a completely satisfactory theory of nuclei has still to come into being, there does exist a widely accepted theoretical approach to the understanding of nuclear phenomena. Most workers in the field start from the same broad interpretations of the qualitative features of the data and most use the same, or closely related, methods of analysis. These basic ideas and techniques of nuclear theory constitute the principal subject matter of this book. However, some departures from generally accepted views may occur as a consequence of the need to select material for presentation, the selection being unavoidably influenced by the taste and judgment of the author. The treatment of the subject has been governed largely by the author's teaching experience. He has found that graduate students, especially those preparing for experimental work in nuclear physics, respond well to a detailed treatment of theoretical questions, so it seemed best to treat rather completely a coherent set of topics of general interest. The desire to keep the length of the book within bounds has therefore resulted in the neglect of a number of interesting matters, among them such topics as nuclear fission, the liquid drop model, the theory of angular correlations of radiations from nuclei, forbidden beta transitions, and so on. Despite these gaps, it is hoped that the reader will be able to sense the spirit and learn the basic methods of theoretical nuclear physics.
