1. NAME AND TITLE
UPEAK: A Program for Decomposing A One-Dimensional Spectrum
Joint Institute of Nuclear Research, Dubna, USSR, through NEA Data Bank, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; IBM PC/XT; IBM PC/AT.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
UPEAK was written for the purpose of decomposing a one-dimensional spectrum into its components.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The spectrum of nuclear reactions may be formally considered as a linear combination: s(x) = SUM((fi(x),i=1,n) + b(x) + e(x); where fi(x) is the i-th component of interest, b(x) is the background and e(x) is the statistical error with zero-valued mean and variance d(x); s(x) is the spectrum. Each measured component is regarded as a result of a transformation of its model m(x). Regression analysis is used to determine the least squares estimates of some of the parameters.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
A maximum of 20 components in the spectrum interval can be used.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
At the NEA Data Bank, the sample problem took about 4 minutes on an IBM PC/AT with a math co-processor.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
IBM PC and compatibles with math co-processor.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code was written in Fortran 77 and uses RM Fortran Version 2.42 or higher compiler. The PLINK86 overlay linker is also necessary.
