3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

CADE calculates reaction cross  sections for multi-particle emission. The total cross section for the emission of a particle at any particular stage is calculated together with the cross section as a function of energy. The probability of leaving the final nucleus in a state of any particular energy is also obtained.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The program performs compound nucleus calculations using the Weisskopf-Ewing formalism. Multi-particle emissions are treated as a series of stages in a cascade. The relevant compound nucleus absorption cross sections for particle channels are calculated with built-in optical model routines. The gamma-ray emission is described by the giant dipole resonance formalism.
