Abstract :

The mathematics of quantum physics from the standard model using groups U(1)xSU(2)xSU(3) and the Pauli Principle produces two sets of time independent quantum states n(n+1) and n(n-1) where n is the principal quantum number. Oscillations between these states results in a one to one mapping with the Roberts-Janet nuclear periodic table by interpretation of n>0 for condensed matter and n<0 for plasma prior to fusion. The mechanism provides a framework for periodic tables for every supernova by excluding mass number. In the lower half of the table occupation by bosons leads to increased energy density following recycling. A suggestion of suitable heavy nuclei to stimulate fusion is proposed.
