 Publisher's Summary
 "From Nucleons to Nucleus" deals with singleparticle and collective features of spherical nuclei. Each nuclear model is introduced and derived in detail. The formalism is then applied to light and mediumheavy nuclei in workedout examples, and finally the acquired skills are strengthened by a wide selection of exercises, many relating the models to experimental data. For consistency, the surface delta interaction is used in all applications requiring configuration mixing. Nuclear properties are discussed using particles, holes and quasiparticles. A large number of matrix elements of standard operators have been tabulated for reference. "From Nucleons to Nucleus" is based on lectures on nuclear physics given by the author. It's main scope is thus to serve as a textbook for advanced students. But also researchers will appreciate it as wellbalanced reference to theoretical nuclear physics.
