The Nucleus of Tomorrow

  • Denys Wilkinson
Part of the The Subnuclear Series book series (SUS, volume 26)


When I began research in nuclear physics in 1943 the “bible” was the great three—volume Bethe—Bacher—Livingston Reviews of Modern Physics article of 1936–37. Although this article is now an object of veneration rather than of study it is remarkable how much of our later understanding of nuclear structure is fore—shadowed in it. The article may be innocent of the word “parity” but it does envisage the possible relevance of the independent particle, cluster and collective models and it anticipates a fair amount of later nuclear reaction theory.
