3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

EVAP calculates the   types, multiplicities, and energy distributions of particles evaporated from excited compound nuclei. The version in this package calculates the excitation energy of the compound nucleus from the data furnished for the target nucleus and incident particle; other versions are packaged with Bertini's intranuclear cascade code (CCC-46/LEP) which accept instead the output from a cascade calculation to determine the initial conditions for the evaporation. Other than the determination  of these initial conditions, both versions are identical.

4. METHODS

The evaporation process is started with the
collision of an incident particle with a target nucleus. An excited compound nucleus is formed from which particles are emitted until evaporation is no longer energetically possible.
The calculation is based on a theory originally proposed by
Weisskopf [Phys. Rev. 52 (1937) 295], and on a Monte Carlo code written by Dostrovsky [Phys. Rev. 116. (1959) 683; Phys. Rev. 118 (1960) 781, 791].

8. RELATED OR AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

An early version of EVAP is also packages with CCC-7/NTC and with CCC-47/LEP. This version, EVAP-4, represents the latest modification and extension of the original program. It is identical to EVAP-3 in all respects except that an "improved-termination" procedure has been added.
