3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN; IBM 360/370.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
HIC-1 is designed to calculate continuum-state transitions between projectile and target in
heavy-ion reactions at energies > 50 MeV/nucleon. In the course of a collision of two heavy ions,
free nucleons, pions, and various ion fragments may be produced. Monte Carlo calculations of the
energy and angular spectra of these emergent particles are performed.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Monte Carlo techniques are used.
The underlying assumption in the model is that the reaction can be represented as the
interaction of two Fermi gases of nucleons. As they pass through each other, a cascade takes place
in the overlapping region of the projectile and the target with quasi-free nucleon-nucleon reactions.
Evaporation processes in the ion fragments are included, but gamma-ray emission is not computed.
