** Result: for a given isotope, there's a function taking {excitation level X neutron energy} to {first-order fission probability}

* Electrodynamics - strong nuclear force - weak nuclear force - quantum tunneling
* Electrodynamics - strong nuclear force - weak nuclear force - quantum tunneling
** Thermal neutrons can't classically cross Coulomb repulsions, but tunneling permits π-induced fission (π = pion, aka any of 3 π-mesons)
* Liquid drop model - superdeformation - hyperdeformation - compound nucleus

* Nilsson model - (two-humped) fission barrier - fission isomer
