Semi-Empirical Interpretation of Nuclear Masses and Deformations

  • Wladyslaw J. Swiatecki


In this talk I would like, first, to describe a semi-empirical mass formula and then to mention three items that are of interest in the interpretation of nuclear masses.


Magic Number Electrostatic Energy Mass Formula Nuclear Shape Nuclear Mass 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
