Lecture notes on the nuclear shell model and related topicsHere is a selection of lectures on nuclear structure physics, especially the interacting shell model, and related topics. All of these were easily found by searching, but I have collected them for convenience. If any links get broken, let me know.
Notes
on scattering. (Not really shellmodel, but
useful.) Last updated: June 26, 2017
Plus sample scattering code
(also in progress)
Nuclear "boot camp" selftutorial. Note: needs to be done in conjunction with an assigned text or set of texts; see your mentor. Last
