About this book
A clear, informative and authoritative account of one of the fundamental processes in nature, which also explores its wide applications in science, medicine and energy production.
Radioactivity - the breakdown of unstable atomic nuclei, releasing radiation - is a fundamental process in nature, and used to provide important applications in science, medicine, and energy production. But it remains misunderstood and feared. In this Very Short Introduction, Claudio Tuniz explains the nature and mechanisms of radioactivity.
