Atomic physics (or atom physics) is the field of physics that studies atoms as an isolated system of electrons and an atomic nucleus. It is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around the nucleus and the processes by which these arrangements change. This includes ions as well as neutral atoms and, unless otherwise stated, for the purposes of this discussion it should be assumed that the term atom includes ions.

The Wappinger were a group of Native Americans whose territory in the 17th century spread along the eastern side of the Hudson River. Based in Dutchess County, they ranged south to Manhattan and east into parts of Connecticut. They were most closely related to the Lenape and Mahican, all of whom spoke Algonquian languages. Like the Lenape, the Wappinger were not organized into cohesive tribes for most of their history; instead, they formed approximately 18 loosely associated bands.
