## The Nuclear Shell ModelA text for graduate students, derived from a course taught in recent years at the University of Ghent and intended to acquaint students with the characteristic features and details of the shell model. Nine chapters, many appendices, exercises. The subject is moderately intricate, but it is laid out here in such carefully considered detail as to make this a text from which a student can expect actually to acquire some mastery, and perhaps some unanticipated excitement.
