Three curves of stability?

  1. Jun 9, 2008 #1
    I've been doing some analysis on isotope data for a paper, and I've obtained some results which dont seem to appear in the literature. Have you come actross this?

    Here's the first one.

    I haven't seen it, but I would be surprised if it is new. That the odd and even nuclei act differently is well known, for example see:

    I don't remember seeing the two types of even being different, but this is not my field. I would be stunned if it wasn't done already.

    Apparently 10 downloads, but no comments.
    attached is a fuller version and an extract of the data.
