3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The Reference Input Parameter Library (Starter File) contains input parameters for theoretical calculations of nuclear reaction cross sections.  The library is targeted at users of nuclear reaction codes interested in low-energy nuclear applications. Incident and ongoing particles include n, p, d, t, 3He, 4He and gamma, with the energies up to about 100MeV.
  
The library contains nuclear masses, deformations, matter densities, discrete levels and decay schemes, spacings of neutron resonances, optical model potentials, level density parameters, Giant Resonance parameters, gamma-ray strength-functions, and fission barriers.
  
RIPL-2 has been developed under an international project coordinated by the IAEA Nuclear Data Section as a continuation of the RIPL-1 project concluded in 1997. The original scope of RIPL-2 was to test and validate RIPL-1 database. In the course of work most of the recommended files were extended and many new were added. On the other hand, a number of so called 'other' files from RIPL-1 are not included in RIPL-2. Testing of these files was not at the level typical for the RIPL-2 files but they may still be a valuable source of additional information. Therefore, RIPL-1 remains available although use of the RIPL-2 data is generally recommended.

4. METHODS

An important trend in the evaluation of neutron and charged-particle nuclear data at low energies (0-30 MeV) is the increased use of nuclear reaction theory codes to compute the cross sections, spectra, and angular distribution required by a large variety of applications. As a method of evaluation, such model codes offer, in comparison with simpler approaches, many advantages such as the preservation of the energy balance or the coherence of partial cross sections with the total or the reaction cross section, which are essential properties for nuclear data in transport calculations. In addition, the theoretical approach is the only one that allows the prediction of data for unstable nuclei.
