Readers are also introduced with the concept of interaction of radiation with matter, and detectors including particle accelerators from a practical rather a theoretical point of view. A separate chapter has been devoted to particle physics along with the latest developments. The book also presents an overview of the applications of nuclear physics to various fields such as nuclear energy, healthcare, industry and environment. The evolution of the universe along with the primordial and the stellar nucleosynthesis has been discussed in the last chapter.
