Description

I will present results of the recent evaluation of the fundamental constants by CODATA. I will in particular discuss the general structure of the data as well as progress in the determination of the most important constants, such as the Rydberg constant, the proton charge radius, the electron-to-proton mass ratio, the fine structure constant, the Planck and Avogadro constant, the elementary charge.
