    :?

    Does someone know if the magic numers for most stable nuclei got refined yet (in the sense that pairs of numbers is used instead of the magic numbers that apply to EITHER protons or neutrons)?

    The most stabel nuclei are those of Iron 56, with 26 protons and 30 neutrons.

    Thank you, I actually need a list of the 15 (about) most stable nuclei. Or failing that a list of binding energies. Please help about where I can find it.
    Is the symbol always E_b for binding energies?

    This may not be the case:

    "It seems to be widely believed that 56Fe is the most tightly bound atomic nuclide. Data are compiled showing that this is not so: Both 58Fe and 62Ni are more strongly bound than 56Fe, with 62Ni having the highest mean binding energy. "
