In super-heavy nuclei, we may expect to discover new phenomena because of the strong Coulomb force. One example is the true ternary fission. We study the sequential two binary fission of 300120 and 252Cf that produces three fragments. We use the Metropolis method to estimate the probability of the second fission. The probability of the second fission is 10−4-10−3 for superheavy nuclei while it is 10−7−10−6 for heavy actinide nuclei. The most probable mass division is almost symmetric in the case of 300120. We also demonstrate the applicability of the Metropolis method to a non-equilibrium process by comparing it with the Langevin equation.
