    The yields of 42 projectile-like fragments (PLFs) and fission fragments and 36 target-like fragments (TLFs) were measured using off-line γ-ray spectroscopy in a thin target experiment involving the Xe136+Pt198 reaction. The center of target beam energy was 760.5 MeV (Ec.m.=450 MeV). The reported yields are compared with those from previous measurements for this reaction and with predictions of the GRAZING, di-nuclear systems (DNS), and improved quantum molecular dynamics (ImQMD) models. The yields of the TLFs and PLFs are, in general, substantially smaller than those previously observed at a beam energy of 1085 MeV. Neither the GRAZING nor the DNS model correctly describes the measured TLF and PLF yields in this lower- energy reaction but the ImQMD model describes these yields adequately.
