This is one of three talks about the same subject. You have heard from Nissan Zeldes, how the study of the mass surface led him to his mass formula, and you again will learn from Wladislav Swiatecki what he believes the mass formula should look like. What we have to offer in some sense is a compromise between these two extremely different models. No matter, however, which formula you like more, you will agree that the fact that there are so many different formulae is quite amusing, since physics is amusing as long as there are problems.
