3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

PSYCHE is a program  for checking the physics content of an evaluated data file. It can recognise the difference between ENDF-5 or ENDF-6 formats and performs its tests accordingly.
USCD1216/08
New version differs from previous version in the following features
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This version corrects all bugs reported to NNDC as of February 1, 2009 and
supersede all previous releases.

Version 8.00   August  2008     A. Trkov
               1. Major updating of the code.
               2. Further reduction of non-essential output.
               3. Read real variables in double precision to avoid reporting
                  errors reading small numbers.
               4. Implement extended features of the format endorsed by CSEWG.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

PSYCHE checks for energy conservation for emitted neutrons and photons, checks Wick's limit for elastic scattering, analyses resonance parameter statistics, calculates thermal cross sections and resonance integrals, examines continuity across resonance region boundaries and checks "Q" values against mass tables.

14. OTHER PROGRAMMING OR OPERATING INFORMATION OR RESTRICTIONS

In addition to the batch mode version of each program, there are three interactive versions, one for WINDOWS compiled using HP Visual Fortran, one for OpenVMS and one for UNIX compiled using the Lahey Fortran-95 Compiler. These versions prompt the user for each piece of input data instead of reading it from an input file.
