Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to teach students the basics of physics of atomic nucleus. Students will acquire knowledgeabout the basic properties of atomic nuclei and the way they can be measured. They will learn basic models, whichdescribe the structure of the atomic nucleus and nuclear reactions. Part of the lectures is also getting familiar with thephysics of the cosmic radiation and applications of nuclear physics.
