Web Pages

Below is a list of relevant web pages.

1.
chemguide.co.uk

Jim Clarke's UK site with lots of solid info.

2.
Citizendium

The Citizen’s Compendium. Had a rather good write up on the quantization of the electromagnetic field.

3.
Elster’s lecture notes

Professor Elster gives a very helpful historical overview of the meson exchange potentials, (fewblect_2.pdf). She also gives the detailed potentials for scalar and vector mesons that the other references do not, (fewblect_1.pdf).

4.
ENSDF data

The Nuclear Data Sheets are an authoritative and comprehensive data source on nuclei. The corresponding
Nuclear Data Sheets policies
have been used repeatedly in this book to decide what conventions to take as standard.

5.
Richard P. Feynman: Nobel Prize lecture

Describes the development of Feynman’s path integral approach to quantum electrodynamics.

6.
Hyperphysics

Gives simple explanations of almost anything in physics. An extensive source of info on chemical bonds and the periodic table.

7.
ICC program

Program to compute internal conversion coefficients.

8.
J. Jäckle

This web site includes a good description of the Peltier and Seebeck effects.

9.
R.D. Klauber’s pedagogical quantum field theory

This web site gives a fully explained description of quantum field theory.

10.
Mayer, M. Goeppert: Nobel Prize lecture

An excellent introduction to the shell model of nuclear physics written for a general audience is found in the lecture.

11.
NIST data

Authoritative values of physical constants from NIST.

12.
NuDat 2 database

Extensive information about nuclei provided by the National Nuclear Data Center.

13.
Purdue chemistry review

General chemistry help.

14.
Quantum Exchange

Lots of stuff.

15.
Rainwater, J.: Nobel Prize lecture

An introduction to distorted nuclei written for a general audience is found in the lecture.

16.
Anthony Stone’s Wigner coefficient calculators

The calculator on this site gives exact values for the Wigner 3j, 6j, and 6j symbols. The 3j symbols are readily converted to Clebsch-Gordan coefficients, {N.13}.

17.
David Tong’s notes on quantum field theory

Very helpful, especially in conjunction with Peskin & Schroeder, [34].

18.
T. Tritt

Thermoelectric materials: principles, structure, properties, and applications. From Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology. Elsevier 2002.

19.
TUNL Nuclear Data Evaluation Group

Extensive data on light nuclei from $A$ $\vphantom0\raisebox{1.5pt}{$=$}$ 3 to 20.

20.
University of Michigan

Invaluable source on the hydrogen molecule and chemical bonds. Have a look at the animated periodic table for actual atom energy levels.

21.
Wikipedia

Probably this book’s primary source of information on about every loose end, though somewhat uneven. Some great, some confusing, some overly technical.
