Additional results on the degree of correlation of the alpha- and triton emission probabilities in spontaneous and induced ternary fission with various physical parameters are discussed, making use of calculations by Ruben in the frame of a two spheroid scission point model. Consideration of the dependence of the emission probabilities on experimental variables leads to the conclusion that the calculated average deformation energy shows poor correlation with other variables. This could be due to the uncertainty of the semi-empirical values which have been adopted for the dissipative energy. Triton yields give much better correlations, and calculations show that triton emission mainly occurs at the expense of the heavy fragment.
