3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

ICAR performs state and level density calculations for a specified type of nucleon. Calculations can be carried out in terms of the free gas model or in the frame of the BCS formalism to account for the pairing interaction. In both cases it is possible to restrict the calculation to orbitals lying below the binding energy, e.g. to calculate bound state densities in the terms of a multistep compound model.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The code starts by calculating properties of the ground state, such as correlation funcion, chemical potential, total energy and condensation energy. Next all possible configurations of n excitons within the adopted orbitals are generated by menas of a combination enumeration algorithm.
