By assuming that the nuclear moment of inertia is a function of nuclear spin, a Brookhaven group has developed a model for even–even nuclei that successfully predicts level spacings in ground‐state bands, which are level sequences that have values of spin and parity Jp = 2+,4+,6+,… Such bands are found in both deformed and spherical nuclei.
