Atomic Mass Formulas with Empirical Shell Terms

An advance was made in the study of empirical mass formulas1,2 by including new experimental data and by applying a new statistical treatment. Our mass formula consists of a gross part and proton and neutron shell parts. The shell parameter values were determined by a new statistical method, whose essential point was to take into account the intrinsic error of the mass formula. Main characteristics of the formula thus obtained are presented.
