This book reviews the basic models and theories of nuclear
structure and gives an in-depth analysis of their experimental and
mathematical foundations. It shows the relationships between the
models and exhibits the value of following the strategy of: looking
for patterns in all the data available, developing phenomenological
models to explain them, and finally giving the models a foundation
in a fundamental microscopic theory of interacting neutrons and
protons. This unique book takes a newcomer from an introduction to
nuclear structure physics to the frontiers of the subject along a
painless path. It provides both the experimental and mathematical
foundations of the essential models in a way that is accessible to
a broad range of experimental and theoretical physicists. Thus, the
book provides a unique resource and an exposition of the essential
principles, mathematical structures, assumptions, and observational
data on which the models and theories are based. It avoids
discussion of many non-essential variations and technical details
of the models.
