Electronic configuration: periodicity

This gives the ground state neutral gaseous atom electronic configuration of the elements.




There are minor discrepancies when the data are compared from different literature sources. I am grateful to Dr. William C. Martin (NIST, USA) for bringing Ref. 1 to my attention.
