On the Possible Existence of Strong Elementary Charge & Its Applications

U. V. S. Seshavatharam, S. Lakshminarayana


We review the basics of nuclear binding energy scheme and neutron-proton stability scheme assumed to be associated with the existence of a new strong nuclear elementary charge associated with square root of reciprocal of the strong coupling constant. An attempt is made to understand magic proton numbers in terms of their nuclear binding energy.
