Title: Nuclear energy : principles, practices, and prospects
Author: Bodansky, David
Abstract: This book has evolved from notes prepared for students in a physics course designed to cover the major aspects of energy production and consumption. About one-third of the course dealt with nuclear energy, and the notes for that segment were revised and expanded for the present book. The course assumed that the students had at least one year of collegelevel physics, thus permitting the inclusion of some technical discussions. The present book, in its occasional use of equations and technical terminology, somewhat reflects the nature of that original audience. Readers with relatively little background in physics and engineering may find it useful to refer to the Appendix on “Elementary Aspects of Nuclear Physics,” and to the Glossary. I have sometimes been asked: “For whom is the book written?” One difficulty
