Abstract : Elementary particle masses are found to be quantized exponential multiples of the electron mass. Mass relations closely approximating the Gell-Mann-Okubo relations are obtained for baryons, and mass relations accurate to 2.2% are obtained for mesons. These relations also hold for excited mass states. (Author)
