3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Neutron total and differential elastic and inelastic cross-section evaluation by means of the statistical model of Hauser-Feshbach (1) as modified by D. Goldman (2) (3). The Goldman modification includes the effect of spin-orbit  coupling on transmission coefficients.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION:  For numerical integration the Fox-Goodwins method is used.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

   Angular momentum I less than or equal to 50.
   Number of excited levels less than or equal to 30.
