From previous editions: 'An excellent book for learning the basics of neutron scattering, which in the process teaches much about modern methods of quantum theory applied to condensed matter. Squires provides the simplest and most concise treatment of this material I have ever seen.' Jerry Mayers, ISIS, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
'… this is a theoretical book, welcome on the shelves of experimenters of thermal neutron scattering, and physics, chemistry and material science libraries in universities and research institutes.' Hagai Shaked, Acta Crystallographic
A long-awaited reprint of the book that has established itself as the classic textbook on neutron scattering. It will be an invaluable introductory text for students taking courses on neutron scattering, as well as for researchers and those who would like to deepen their knowledge on the subject through self-study.
