Maria Goeppert-Mayer established mathematically that if the nuclear particles were spinning on their axes and orbiting within the nucleus in predictable paths that can be described as shells, these numbers would be when the shells were full -- and more stable than half-empty shells.

However, she continued to conduct research and published from to At this time, she also co-wrote a graduate-level book, Statistical Mechanics, with her husband.

The book become a standard text for decades. InMaria Goeppert Mayer and Hans D. Jensen published the first textbook dedicated entirely to the nuclear shell model, ‘Elementary Theory of Nuclear Shell Structure’. Inshe was guest of honor at Women’s Week in Japan, and in.

Goeppert Mayer had not met Jensen at the time, but later the two did meet. They became friends and collaborators, and wrote a book together on the nuclear shell model. Jensen and Goeppert Mayer won the Nobel Prize in for their work on the shell model.

They shared the prize with Eugene Wigner, for unrelated work. The shell model, although proposed by theoreticians, really corresponds to the experimentalist's approach.

It was born from a thorough study of the experimental data, plotting them in different ways, and looking for interconnections. Ownership Signature Of Pioneering Computer Engineer Willis H.
