3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

The code calculates cross sections, particle emission spectra and their angular distributions  for reactions of type A(x,y)B, where x and y can be n, p, alpha, He-3, d or t. The nuclear model is based upon the time-integrated master-integrated master-equation approach of the excitation model.  The calculated cross sections contain precompound and compound contributions. The angular distributions are calculated according to the model of G. Mantzouranis, D. Agassi and H.A. Weidenmueller (1).

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The mathematical solution of the generalized master equations is given in (2). A rather complete description of the method is given in (3).

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The validity of the  model is restricted to projectile energies of 10 to 50 MeV. Only first-particle emission cross sections are calculated. The level densities are assumed to be described by continuum distributions; no spin and parity dependences are accounted for.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The sample problem takes 0.37 CP seconds on a CYBER-175.
NEA-DB executed the test case on CDC CYBER 174 in 2.4 seconds.
