Unfortunately, for chemists, are curriculum is (usually) not as rigorous in the mathematics and physics as I would’ve liked. This (in my humble opinion) is a disservice to those looking to explore more physical areas of chemistry.
As an aspiring nuclear chemist, I need some recommendations for a good place to start to learn nuclear physics at a level that is beneficial for a chemist. Preferably books that are more suited for the autodidact with limited contact with outside resources that can aid in my studies.
Additionally if anyone thinks I should look into any books/subjects that may not be present in a chemists curriculum but is necessary to this subject, that would be appreciated along with the necessary math required for each.
I’ve only really just begun graduate studies so advanced classes in either field is essentially zero
My (relevant) curriculum -
- Quantum Mechanics
- Up to multi variable calculus
- Linear algebra
- Differential equations
- Electromagnetism (freshman level)
Not sure about specific topics to cover in nuclear physics so a more broad introduction is preferred for a first book.
