About the Authors
  • Each naturally occurring isotope contributes to the history of matter by having its own special role in cosmic evolution. This volume elucidates the origins of our material world by looking at the abundance of the elements and their isotopes, and how this is interpreted within the theory of nucleosynthesis. Each isotope of elements from Hydrogen to Gallium is covered in detail. The book will be suitable for astronomers, physicists, chemists, geologists and planetary scientists, and contains a glossary of essential technical terms.

    • A readable companion to the isotopes, and their place in the cosmos
    • Written by a leading authority in the field
    • Accessible to scientists from a range of disciplines, from astronomy to geology
