3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Subroutine HEITLER computes, for  any element, the Compton, photoelectric, pair-production, and total microscopic cross-sections. It also computes either the Compton absorption cross-section or the Klein-Nishina differential scattering cross-section.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The Compton cross sections are calculated theoretically from the Klein-Nishina equation. The photoelectric and pair-production cross-sections are obtained by suitable interpolation in atomic number and energy using a compilation of 25 sets (more or less) of measured cross-sections.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The range of atomic numbers is from 1 to 94 inclusive.
The range of photon energy is from 10 keV to 20 MeV inclusive.
