Title:The History and Science of the Manhattan Project [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bruce Cameron Reed
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The development of atomic bombs under the auspices of the U. S. Armys Manhattan Project during World War II is considered to be the outstanding news story of the twentieth century. In this book, a physicist and expert on thehistory of the Project pre sents a comprehensive overview of this momentous achievement. The first three chapters cover the history of nuclear physics from the discovery of radioactivity to the discovery of fission, and would be idealfor instructors of a sophomore-level Modern Phys ics course. Student-level exercises at the ends of the chapters are accompanied by answers. Chapter 7 covers the physics of first-generation fission weapons at a similar level,again accompanied by exercises and answers. For the interested layman and for n on-science students and instructors, the book includes extensive qualitative material on the history, organization, implementation, and results of theManhattan Project and the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing missions. The reader also learns about the legac y of the Project as reflected in the current world stockpiles of nuclear weapons.
