We will begin by considering the simple problem of energy transfer to a free
electron by a fast heavy particle. Then the effects of a binding force on the
electron are explored, and the classical Bohr formula for energy loss is obtained.
For simplicity we will consider the so-called Lorentz gas, which consists of N fixed
ions of charge Ze per unit volume and NZ free electrons per unit volume.
Furthermore electron-electron interactions will be ignored. The approximation of
Nevertheless, the radiation can be observed, and provides useful information for
nuclear physicists. In the actual beta process the energy release is shared by the
electron and the neutrino so that the electron has a whole spectrum of energies ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review

"Jackson E&M is about learning how to approximate reliably...the entire book, with few exceptions, is a mathematical discussion on how to solve [the same] 4 problems for different boundary conditions." Read full review
