Evidence for the fundamental spinless mass quantum M = 70 MEV

Part I. Mass Quantization: The Search for the Basis States
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 81)


This is the pivotal chapter in the book, both because of the clarity and comprehensiveness of the experimental results presented here, and because of the theoretical implications of these results. If the existence of the 70 MeV mass quantum M can be established, then the later results in the book follow as a logical consequence; but if the evidence presented here, plus the corollary evidence in Chapters 6 through 9, is not accepted as conclusive, then the later results will not be conclusive either.
