3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

InventDyn.MT calculates the dynamics of the amount of isotope and its daughter nuclides with time stamps. Users can set the number of time bins and widths. Note that each time bin grows non –linearly according to the extension factor that user provided. Thus, the last scoring time and simulation accuracy are changed by modifying those parameters.

Also, the isomer state can be defined by setting ‘setIsomerHL’. That helps to investigate isomers which have various life times from long-lived isomers to ultra-short-lived ones. As the output, this program describes relative amount of an isotope and produced daughter nuclides in a time sequence normalizing their inventory as 1.

4. METHODS

The Monte-Carlo method is used.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running time of the calculation depends on the number of input isotopes and the number of events. A calculation of 1,000,000 sampling with one isotope takes about 80 seconds on an Intel i7 hexa-core process (3.20 GHz).

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

It is possible to define the half-life of isomer. Therefore, short-lived or ultra-short-lived isomers could be investigated with this code as well as long-lived ones.
