Magic Numbers in Polygonal and Polyhedral Clusters


Certain values for the nuclearity of clusters tend to occur more frequently than others. This paper gives a mathematical derivation of the preferred values of nuclearity (the “magic numbers”) corresponding to various symmetrical, close-packed polygons (in two dimensions) and polyhedra (in three dimensions). Simple general formulas are obtained for the… (More)
