A Deformable Mass Formula and Fission Data
Development within the past decade of improved shell model and deformation corrections to the liquid-drop mass law has not only improved its accuracy but also allowed use in more aspects of nuclear physics, such as calculation of fission barriers. Additional experimental data are thus available as input for determination of mass-formula parameters. Preliminary results including fission barrier heights and fission Q-values as input data will be presented. Statistical tests have been performed on fits to the 1971 mass table and to the input reactions and doublets, indicating a possible discrepancy between the two forms of data.
