Summary and Info
Radioactivity - Radionuclides - Radiation provides professionals and students with a comprehensive background in the three Rs of nuclear science. It is suitable for students in the related fields of nuclear and radiochemistry, nuclear medicine, health physics, environmental sciences, nuclear and astrophysics. The book covers recent developments in the areas of exotic decay modes (bound beta decay of 'bare' or fully ionized nuclei), laser transmutation, nuclear forensics, radiation hormesis and the LNT hypothesis, and alpha-immunotherapy. Atomic mass data for over 3000 nuclides from the most recent (2003) evaluation are included. The book includes a CD-ROM containing the Universal Nuclide Chart - an interactive, platform independent JAVA-program for displaying basic nuclear data, decay processes and neutron reactions.
