3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The main purpose of the DIFBAS  code is to unfold pulse height spectra measured by a proton recoil detector (e.g. H filled proportional counters or organic scintillators) to obtain neutron spectra. It can be used generally for the unfolding of arbitrary many channel spectra containing original particle spectra folded by a detector response (e.g. spectra of photon detectors).

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The algorithm is based on the Bayesian conditional probability assuming normal distributions of both the pulse height and the a priori spectra. The covariance filter method, which avoids any matrix inversion, is employed to calculate the a-posteriori spectrum and covariance matrix of the neutron spectrum.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Strongly depends on dimensions of the response matrix. The sample case (138*136 bins) takes about 7 min on 33 MHz PC (386).

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The following codes are added to the package:
- RMC, MB as interface to the code NRESP7 for the calculation of the   NE213 response matrix;
- SPHC for PH spectrum rebinning and the corresponding covariance   matrix calculation;
- FOC, CUPR for use of unformatted output fluence and covariance   files.
