This thoroughly updated and expanded edition features two new chapters on statistics for health physics and on environmental radioactivity, particularly concerning radon and radon daughters. Fresh material includes: a derivation of the stopping-power formula for heavy charged particles in the impulse approximation, a detailed discussion of beta-particle track structure and penetration in matter, an extensive description of the various interaction coefficients for photons, several new worked examples and additional end-of-chapter problems.
