1. NAME AND TITLE
ITER-2: Codes for Unfolding Activation Detector Data and Pulse Height Spectra.
Jozef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Yugoslavia.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; CDC.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
ITER-2 includes two versions of the ITER code; these are ITERAD and ITERMS. ITER-2 was
previously used for unfolding data from neutron activation detectors; it is now capable, also, of
unfolding pulse height spectra.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
ITER-2 is an iterative code which does activation detector and multispectrometer unfolding. Two
simple routines are incorporated into ITER-2 to accelerate the iterative process.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
When applied for the unfolding of 10 - 15 reaction rates, ITER-2 yields satisfactory results after about 10 - 20 iterations. Roughly 100 iterations are required when the same method is used for the multichannel spectrometer data unfolding.
If Monte Carlo runs are to be performed, random number subroutine RANSET (seed initialize) and
function RANF (return uniformly distributed random number between zero and one) must be available.
The CDC Fortran compiler FTN is equipped with these two subprograms.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
For the test run of the program on a CDC Cyber computer (25 iterations, 20 Monte Carlo runs
with 25 iterations each, dose calculations) 4.738 CP seconds were used by the compiler, 1.536 seconds
by the loader and 57.427 seconds for the execution.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
ITER-2 is operable on the CDC Cyber computers. 34,525 (octal) words of core storage are
required on the CDC Cyber 72 computer. It uses two mass storage files during execution.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
ITER-2 runs under he SCOPE or NOS/BE operating systems. A Fortran IV compiler is required.
