This textbook presents students with nuclear concepts, models, vocabulary, and problem-solving skills that are essential for success in subsequent course work in reactor theory and engineering.  Designed for a sophomore science or engineering student with a firm foundation in the basics of college physics and mathematics through ordinary differential equations, Mayo's book addresses concepts in modern physics (special relativity, quantum concepts, etc.) and develops those concepts as necessary in the presentation of the text material.  The text objective is to present fundamental nuclear principles in a clear and understandable yet physically sound manner.
