only this nuclear site

Hello, hello! Wot's this, then?

This is a site for students and others interested in Nuclear Engineering, built when I was Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics, McMaster University. I am retired now but still maintain the site. Suggestions and comments are welcome. Contact me. My short bio (pdf 9kb).

Looking for general nuclear info, courses, links, technical reports, etc.? Check out the links below. This site contains complete lecture notes, worked problems and actual lecture recordings (screen and audio capture). Check it out and enjoy!
