Number theory and nuclear physics

  1. Oct 30, 2008 #1
    I am currently taking a course in number theory, and I stumbled upon a book on amazon which relates number theory to quantum and nuclear physics...

    Is this possible? In what areas and how? As previously mentioned I am taking a course on it so if anyone can give the specific mathematical details of what is exactly used from number theory it would be greatly appreciated.

    This may seem radical, but maybe if you are interested in what the book says, you might read the book.

    I took a look at a few excerpts on Amazon, and to make an honest review, I'd have to (like I said) read the book, but it seems more a juxtaposition of the two concepts than explaining one in terms of the other.
