Using Simple Number Theory to Predict Stable Isotopes

Authors: Sean C. Williams

An abstract method is described for predicting stable isotopes using simple number theory based on a system of predefined combinations, or "Blocks", of protons and neutrons. Each Block is made up of a prime number of protons, and a binary power increase in the number of neutrons. Predictions using the Block system fully includes all the stable isotopes.
