3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

Automatic search for local and non-local optical potential parameters for neutrons. Total, elastic, differential elastic cross sections, l=0 and l=1 strength functions and scattering length can be considered.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

A fitting procedure is applied to different sets of experimental data depending on the local or non-local approximation chosen. In the non-local approximation the fitting procedure can be simultaneously performed over the whole energy range. The best fit is obtained when a set of parameters is found where CHI**2 is at its minimum. The solution of the system equations is obtained by diagonalization of the matrix according to the Jacobi method.
