Title: Ground state spontaneous fission half-lives from thorium to fermium

Measurements of the half-lives for spontaneous fission of the nuclidic ground states of elements from thorium to fermium have been compiled and evaluated. Recommended values are presented. An attempt has been made to distinguish between spontaneous fission and heavy ion emission. Spontaneously fissioning isomers have not been considered here. The difference between even-even nuclides and odd-even, even-odd and odd-odd nuclides are discussed. 3 tabs.
