3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

BARMOM is a collection of three FORTRAN 77 subroutines: BARFIT, MOMFIT, and LPOLY. BARFIT calculates the fission barrier height (in MeV), the rotating ground-state energy (in MeV), and the maximum angular momentum possible in a system of atomic number IZ, atomic mass IA, and angular momentum IL  (in units of h-bar). MOMFIT calculates the three principal axis moments of inertia of the saddle-point shape with IZ, IA and IL. LPOLY calculates Legendre polynomials and is called by BARFIT and MOMFIT.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The values of all quantities calculated result  from multiparameter fits to calculated properties of fission saddle  points and ground states.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The three sub- routines will give an approximation to the calculated fission barrier height, ground-state energy, Lmax, and saddle-point moments  of inertia for Z between 20 and 100, A between 1.47+0.009Z**2 and 20+3Z, and L between 0 and Lmax, where Lmax is the value of angular  momentum at which the fission barrier vanishes.
