3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

The code is able to determine the integral quantities and their sensitivities, together with an estimate of the unfolded spectrum and integral quantities. The code  also performs a chi-square test of the input/output data, and contains many options for the calculational routines.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The code is based on the J1-type unfolding method, and the estimated neutron flux spectrum is obtained as its solution.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The maximum number of energy groups used for unfolding is 620. The maximum number of reaction rates and the window functions given as input is 20. The total storage requirement depends on the amount of input data.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

4.8 sec CPU time are needed for a 7 reaction  and 25 energy group calculation.
NEA-0823/01
NEA-DB executed the test case included in this package  on an IBM 3084Q computer in 0.27 seconds of CPU time.
