3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

POLLA1 transforms Reich-Moore resolved resonance parameters to the corresponding positive momentum Adler-Adler ones. It is designed to run directly on a file in the ENDF/B format, creating a new file in which the Reich-Moore parametrization has been replaced by the Adler-Adler one.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The Adler-Adler poles are obtained by applying  Newton's method to the inverse of the determinant of the Reich-Moore pole matrix. The perturbative solution of R.B. Perez and G. de Saussure, Phys. Rev. C10 (1974)187, is used as a first guess. The residues at the poles are calculated using a simple numerical difference method.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

As currently dimensioned, the program permits a maximum of 400 coherent resonances. The transformation itself, which neglets all negative momentum poles, is only accurate for heavy nuclei.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME:  Varies greatly from case to case.
IAEA0944/01
NEA-DB executed the test case included in this package  on a CDC CYBER 740 computer in 20.7 seconds of CPU time.
