3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

ELGATL calculates electron and photon track lengths in uniform homogeneous media accounting for all major physical particle interactions. It was designed for problems where only energy spectra and not position and direction of particles are required or where source is uniformly distributed.
top ]
4. METHODS

ELGATL incorporates the direct numerical integration of coupled electron-photon track length equations using iterative techniques.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

ELGATL is valid for energies ranging from 10 keV to over 10 GeV.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Typical running time is approximately 10 minutes on the CDC-6600 for 500 energy groups, but it is highly dependent upon the number of groups due to the iterative numerical technique.
