The chapter addresses several important questions, such as nuclear stability: why are some nuclei stable, while others are not (that is, they undergo fission)? How many stable elements can we expect? How is the electrical charge distributed within protons and neutrons? One problem devoted to the lifetime of positronium with respect to annihilation connects atomic physics with that of elementary particles.

Keywords:   nuclear, elementary-particle physics, positronium, nuclear stability, fission, proton, neutron
