Semi-Empirical Analysis of Nuclear Masses

  • Nissan Zeldes
Conference paper


My talk will be divided into three parts. First the empirical features of the nuclear mass surface will be briefly reviewed. Then we shall discuss theoretical interpretations, starting with mass formulas based on the shell model of the nucleus. Lastly, necessary corrections to mass formulas based on the liquid drop model will be considered.
