- Relations among the masses of neighboring nuclei provide a convenient and reasonably accurate method for the estimation of unknown masses. A set of such relations is presented. Each member of this set gives a prediction of roughly equal statistical accuracy for the unknown mass of a given nuclide. The average and dispersion of the set give a most probable mass value and a measure of its uncertainty. The structure of these relations (considered as partial difference equations) leads to another set of difference equations the solutions of which can be ordered such that each successive member is expected to be a more nearly accurate representation of ground-state energies as functions of N and Z. The reliability of such solutions for extrapolation far from the region of known nuclei is discussed. 4 tables.
