Microscopic Energy Density Mass Formula

  • François Tondeur


Some years ago, the semi-empirical mass formulae were sometimes characterized by a quality factor, obtained by the product of the r.m.s. deviation by the number of parameters. Two formulae have a good quality factor: the forty-year-old Bethe-Weizsäcker formula (five parameters, deviation better than 3 MeV), and the formula of Myers and Swiatecki2 (seven parameters, r.m.s. deviation better than 1.5 MeV).
