Major Assumptions of the Shell Model

What is the major assumption of the shell model?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

It is not the same thing, but the basic concepts are very similar.  Wikipedia has a good couple paragraph summary of it with a pretty picture, so I will direct you there: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_model
