3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

DTF-4-J solves the one-dimensional multi-group transport equation with anisotropic scattering by Sn method. It is a FORTRAN adaptation of the Los Alamos DTF-IV program written by K.D. Lathrop, and it is combined with the JAERI SIMPLED-4 program written by H. Nishimura.
