3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The program performs the quantitative analysis of gamma-ray spectra obtained by Ge(Li) detectors, using special libraries which are prepared for each particular problem.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The computer routines which detect and evaluate peak areas perform the following operations:
- local smoothing of the spectrum
- first derivative of the smoothed spectrum,
- peak location according to the change of sign of the first
  derivative.
- computation of the net area of each peak found.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

An original study of the behaviour of the first derivative allows the detection of double peaks and an approximate evaluation of the areas.
