The Discovery of Isotopes: A Complete Compilation by Michael Thoennessen

By Michael Thoennessen

This e-book describes the fascinating discovery of each isotope saw on the earth so far, which presently numbers a few 3000. The discoveries are prepared in chapters based on the statement innovations or construction equipment. every one bankruptcy comprises tables directory the 1st authors of the 1st e-book in addition to information about the construction and detection tools used. on the finish, a complete desk lists all isotopes looked after by means of components. The booklet relies on person paragraphs for every isotope, that have been released over the past few years as separate articles within the magazine “Atomic info and Nuclear facts Tables”. The paintings re-evaluates all past assignments judging them with a uniform set of standards. moreover, the writer comprises over a hundred new isotopes that have been stumbled on because the articles published.
This ebook is a resource of data for researchers in addition to enthusiastic laymen alike.

From the prepublication review:

“The motives concentrate on the necessities, which makes some of the chapters pleasingly compact. The phraseology is definitely comprehensible additionally for non-experts.
