Electron Scattering for Nuclear and Nucleon Structure by Walecka, John Dirk
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 15 March 2011
Hardcover, 378 pages This book examines the motivation for electron scattering and develops the theoretical analysis of the process. It discusses our current theoretical understanding of the underlying structure of nuclei and nucleons at appropriate levels of resolution and sophistication, and summarizes present experimental electron scattering capabilities. Only a working knowledge of quantum mechanics and special relativity is assumed, making this a suitable textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses.
