3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

GCASCAD is designed to calculate, using the statistical model, the gamma-ray branching ratios and the photon  production cross sections. The gamma-ray transmission coefficients are calculated using one of several possible forms for gamma-ray strength functions: Brink-Axel giant dipole model, Kopecky-Uhl generalized Lorentzian model, Weisskopf single-particle model. In the continuum part of level spectrum the level density is treated with the Gilbert-Cameron composite formula.

4. METHODS

The integrals in the continuum  part  of level spectrum are computed using the Gauss method (with 12 quadratures).

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

There are two versions of GCASCAD code, one in FORTRAN-77 language and the other in QUICK-BASIC language, both of them using the same flow chard  and variables names.
The QBasic version of the code is static dimensioned but the space allocated to an array, if it has been declared $DYNAMIC, can be changed using the declaration statement REDIM.
