Isobaric analogue states (IAS) can be used to study the charge independence of the nuclear force via first order perturbation theory. In this case the IAS multiplet masses are expected to follow a quadratic form as described by the Isobaric Multiplet Mass Equation (IMME) with coefficients accessible through experimental measurements. Higher order effects are expected to appear through cubic, or higher, polynomial terms. The current IMME coefficient trends, as based on the IAS states included in the 2012 Atomic Mass Evaluation and NUBASE2012 are shown.
