3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran; CDC CYBER 175.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
PREANG calculates cross sections, particle emission spectra and their angular distributions for
reactions of type A(x,y)B where x and y can be n, p, alpha, He-3, d or t.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
PREANG is based upon the time-integrated master-equation approach of the exciton model. It first
determines the transition and emission rates and the level densities and stores them in the memory.
Next, it calculates the desired cross sections; these contain precompound and compound contributions.
The angular distributions are calculated according to the model of G. Mantzouranis, D. Agassi and
H. A. Weidenmuller.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
The validity of the model is restricted to projectile energies of 10 to 50 MeV. Only first-particle
emission cross sections are calculated. The level densities are assumed to be described by continuum
distributions; PREANG accounts for no spin and parity dependences.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
On the CDC CYBER 175 computer, PREANG usually executes in less than 2 seconds.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
PREANG is operable on the CDC CYBER 175 computers. It requires less than 60,000 words
(octal) of storage.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran compiler is required.
