This book shows the usefulness of the nucleus as a laboratory for learning about basic symmetries and fundamental interactions. It is aimed at advanced graduate students and beginning researchers, but should be useful to advanced researchers as well. Nuclear and particle physicists will find it particularly useful.
Part 1 Symmetries: parity, W. Haeberli and B. Holstein; time reversal, F. Boehm and P. Herczeg; chirality and changes of properties in nuclei, G. Garvey and G.E. Brown; charge symmetry and independence, W.T.H. van Oers and G.E. Miller. Part 2 Basic theory (particle properties and the standard model): the weak sector of the standard model (including CVC, PCAC, etc), I. Towner and J. Hardy; neutrino properties (masses, moments, charge conjugation props), F. Reines and S.P. Rosen; solar neutrinos, K. Lande and L. Wolfenstein; quarks in nuclei, (EMC, strangeness, spin ...), R. McKeown and M. Musolf; muon nuclear physics, V. Hughes and J.D. Walecka. Part 3 Other interactions using nuclei: tests of gravity and medium range forces, E. Adelberger.
