NAME

mass, mass_frdm, mass_hfb, mass_dz - Return nuclear mass

SYNOPSIS

#include <masses.h>

double mass(int Z, int A, int *fl);

double mass_frdm(int Z, int A);

double mass_hfb(int Z, int A);

double mass_dz(int Z, int A);

double emic_frdm(int Z, int A);

double beta2_frdm(int Z, int A);

Link with -lnuclib.

DESCRIPTION

The mass() function returns the 1995 experimental or recommended atomic mass of Audi and Wapstra, mass_frdm() returns the calculated mass within the Finite Range Droplet Model, mass_hfb() returns the calculated mass within the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov theory and mass_dz() returns the calculated mass within the 10 parameter fit of Duflo and Zuker, emic_frdm() returns the calculated microscopic correction within the Finite Range Droplet Model, beta2_frdm() returns the calculated quadrupole deformation of the nuclear ground state within the Finite Range Droplet Model.

Z A

Atomic and mass number of the nucleus.

RETURN VALUE

The functions mass(), mass_frdm(), mass_hfb() and mass_dz() return the values described in atomic mass units (u). The mass in MeV/c^2 is obtained by multiplying by u = 931.494 MeV/c^2. If there is no experimental mass, the function mass() returns the FRDM mass. The function emic_frdm() returns the value described in MeV. The function beta2_frdm() returns the described dimensionless value.

fl returns 0 if no experimental data available, 1 for a mass recommended by Audi&Wapstra (1995) or 2 for a measured mass from Audi&Wapstra (1995).
