This site has been prepared in support of my book The Physics of the Manhattan Project(Springer). Below are links to spreadsheets referenced in the text and to a pdf document giving the algebra of the Bohr & Wheeler derivation of Chapter 6; scroll down if need be. Click here for a pdf document that gives brief descriptions of the spreadsheets. The "Reflected Core" spreadsheet has been added after publication of the book. I would be happy to receive any suggestions for corrections or improvements. Here is a link to the Amazon page, and one to B&N. Links to annotated bibliographies of Manhattan Project literature also appear below. Finally, what would a book on nuclear weapons be without a list of errata (last update November 27, 2011)?
My synoptic treatment of the Manhattan Project, "The History and Science of the Manhattan Project," is now available (ISBN 978-3-642-40296-8). This text is aimed at college-level undergraduate general-science students, but also contains extensive narrative material that will make it of interest to historians and lay readers. A detailed list offootnotes is now available. A few updates and errata (last revision Nov. 24, 2013)are also available. As it is anticipated that most readers will download the searchable e-book version of this work, the published version does not contain an Index. An author-prepared Index is available here (last update Dec. 1, 2013). This is an evolving document; corrections and suggestions welcome!
