Operating System: MINC V1.2, RT-11 V4.0  Source Language: FORTRAN IV
Memory Required: 40KB  Hardware Required: (Two) RX02 floppy disk ports
or storage greater than 1600 blocks  Keywords: MINC/RT-11 Software,

Abstract: This program is an overlaid, condensed version of the
larger program MOSSPEC, which is in use worldwide. It
fits a sum of Lorentzian or Lorentzian/Gaussian combined
lines to a given Mossbauer spectrum by means of the
Gauss non-linear regression procedure with a facility
for constraining any set of parameters or linear
combination of parameters. Results are output as a table
of the fitted parameters, including the statistical
values for standard deviation, x2, and Misfit.
This program was developed to enable sophisticated
Mossbauer curve-fitting to be done on a very small
computer, such as would be present in a laboratory
environment. Use of the detailed User's Manual is
strongly recommended.
Notes: Use of the accompanying manual is strongly recommended.
Restrictions: Program requires approximately 900 blocks of free space
for swapping on and off the disk; therefore it can only
be run off RX02 (double density) floppies: one floppy
for the operating system +STONE.SAV and one floppy for
the few .TMP files and the empty blocks (contiguous).
This program can also be run off any storage medium with
a total of 1600 blocks.
Documentation available in hardcopy only.
