Welcome to the Nucleonica Wiki!
The Nucleonica wiki is an open knowledge resource for the nuclear sciences. In contrast to Wikipedia, which can be edited by anyone, the Nucleonica wiki articles are written by experts and practitioners in the field and cannot be edited. The Nucleonica wiki is devoted specifically to nuclear science. Wiki technology is best suited for this purpose since it allows addition of content at any time from any location.
Another aim the Nucleonica wiki is to provide the technical documentation in support of the Nucleonica nuclear science portal www.nucleonica.com. Whereas the Nucleonica portal requires registration to access its applications and data pages, the wiki is an "open" knowledge resource.
How this Wiki is organized
The Sidebar panel to the left of this window provides quick links to a number of important pages in this wiki. The links are grouped under:
The Wiki contains a collection of articles. Each article has a title (by which it is referenced) and optionally one or more categories. Under Special / Categories you can see all currently existing categories. Thus, it is possible to navigate through all documents by the category and subcategory tree feature of the Wiki.
Of special importance is the Help link. This page contains a collection of articles and is used specifically to support the Nucleonica applications and nuclear data pages. For users logged into the Nucleonica Portal, the context sensitive Help in Nucleonica will lead the user to the corresponding page in the wiki.
Another important item is the Search box. By entering a character string here, the entire wiki is searched. The search results are structured in a coherent way. Enter a piece of text into the Search box (e.g. Curie) and try out this powerful search tool!
