Most widely held works by P. E Hodgson
Theology and modern physics by Peter E Hodgson( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The new discoveries in physics during the 20th century have stimulated intense debate about their relevance to age-old theological questions. Views range from those holding that modern physics provides a surer road to God than traditional religions, to those who say that physics and theology are incommensurable and so do not relate. At the very least, physics has stimulated renewed theological discussions." "In this critical introduction to the science-theology debate, Peter Hodgson draws on his experience as a physicist to present the results of modern physics and the theological implications. Written for those with little or no scientific background, Hodgson describes connections between physics, philosophy and theology and then explains Newtonian physics and Victorian physics, the theories of relativity, astronomy and quantum mechanics, and distinguishing the actual results of modern physics from speculations. The connections with theology are explored throughout. The concluding section draws discussions together and makes an important new contribution to the debate."--Jacket
Energy, the environment and climate change by Peter E Hodgson( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The energy crisis -- Non-renewable energy sources -- Renewable energy sources -- Nuclear power -- The safety of energy sources -- Pollution of the environment -- Climate change -- Politics, psychology and education -- The needs of the developing countries -- Moral problems and responses
The philosophy behind physics by Thomas A Brody( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes his [Brody] ideas on the philosophy of physics, particularly the philosophical problems of quantum mechanics including the ensemble concept of probability, causality, realism, quantum logic and Bell's inequalities. This challenging work will appeal to all open-minded students of science and its philosophy"--Back cover
Spacetime and electromagnetism : an essay on the philosophy of the special theory of relativity by John Randolph Lucas( Book )

14 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear power, energy and the environment by P. E Hodgson( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and French and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We need energy to warm and light our homes, to power our transport and communications, and to support our manufacturing industries. Can we obtain enough energy to satisfy the needs of a rapidly increasing world population without, at the same time, devastating the earth? Is nuclear power the way to do this?" "This book surveys available energy sources and their effects on the environment in the context of moral imperatives and political realities."--Jacket
Nuclear physics in peace and war by P. E Hodgson( Book )

13 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A qualified presentation of all apsects of the effects of nuclear physics, as seen through the eyes of one scientist, who has watched the results of the work of his predecessors and contemporaries and tried to understand their significance. The knowledge which the author imparts is essential to each individual, not only as a Christian trying to understand the significance of this whole new field of knowledge in terms of his own faith, but also to mankind as a whole in its attempt to integrate itself into a world which has been entirely changed
Nuclear reactions and nuclear structure by Peter Edward Hodgson( Book )

13 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The optical model of elastic scattering by Peter Edward HODGSON( Book )

16 editions published between 1963 and 1966 in 3 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introductory nuclear physics by Peter Edward Hodgson( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear physics is the study of the nuclei of atoms and their interactions. This textbook is a comprehensive, balanced, and up to date introduction to the subject. It describes both the experiments made to study nuclear reactions and nuclear structure, and the theories and models that have been developed to understand the properties of nuclei and their interactions. Introductory nuclear physics will serve both as a textbook for undergraduates and graduates, and as a useful reference work for professional nuclear physicists
Nuclear heavy-ion reactions by Peter Edward Hodgson( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growth points in nuclear physics by P. E Hodgson( Book )

in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nucleon momentum and density distributions in nuclei by A. N Antonov( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nucleon correlations in nuclei by Anton Nikolaev Antonov( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book on nucleon correlations in nuclei reviews 15 years of research and thus fills a gap in the literature. A detailed description of nuclear correlations and their application to experimental data is given. Mean-field theories and those that go beyond them are discussed. The effects of nucleon-nucleon correlations on nuclear states are elucidated. Also effects in processes of particle-, photon and nucleus-nucleus interactions are considered. This is an interesting reference book for all scientists working in the field of nuclear physics
Pre-equilibrium nuclear reactions by Ettore Gadioli( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nucleon optical model by Peter Edward Hodgson( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nucleon optical model is widely used to calculate the elastic scattering cross-sections and polarisations for the interaction of neutrons and protons with atomic nuclei. The optical model potentials not only describe the scattering but also provide the wave functions needed to analyse a wide range of nuclear reactions. They also unify many aspects of nuclear reactions and nuclear structure. This book consists of a comprehensive introduction to the subject and a selection of papers by the author describing the optical model in detail. It contains full references to the original literature with many examples of the application of the model to the analysis of experimental data
