Motivation

 

Why bother with visual

representation of the

structure of the atomic

nucleus? The basic

motivation can be

found here.

 

 

Quantum

Nucleodynamics

 

Normal people just donft

study nuclear physics!

But even this traditionally

difficult and abstract

field can be understood

using the tricks of

computer graphics.

 

Versions of the

QND software for

Windows and Macintosh

computers can be

downloaded here.

A Brief History

 

For some background

on the ideas behind

the tumultuous history

of nuclear theory

and the reason why

a lattice model is

necessary, click here.

Some Snapshots

 

Interactive software

is the best way to

understand nuclear

structure, but some

relevant static pictures

can be found here, as well as a 10-minute video.

 

 

Models of the Atomic Nucleus

 

The full story behind

the software and the

unification of the many

models of nuclear

structure theory can be

found in this book from

Springer.
