Nature of problem:TIMEDEL detects and parameterizes resonances found in scattering problems. | ||

Solution method:K-matrices are read in or calculated on the fly (preferred option). The time-delay [1] is calculated from the K-matrices. The resonances are detected by examining the time-delay experienced by the incident particle and fitted to a characteristic Lorentzian or sum-of-Lorentzian form [2]. | ||

Restrictions:The program will only find resonances which have definite maxima in the time-delay. Thus two resonances, very close in energy and width, will be fitted as one resonance. The program also assumes that the effect on the time-delay of more than one resonance is additive. Although this is normally the case, experience has shown this is not always true. | ||

Unusual features:The program uses a processor-dependent 'double complex' variable definition extension to the F90 standard. TIMEDEL can be used either with a user-supplied file of K-matrices or requires a subroutine (called here GETKMAT) supplied by the user to find the K-matrix of their problem at a particular energy. TIMEDEL also uses NAG library routines: E04FDF, a minimization routine; F04ADF, which solves the matrix equation AS = B; and F02HAF, which finds eigenvectors and values of a matrix. These routines are not supplied here and the code must be compiled with the NAG library [3]. | ||

Running time:2.0 s plus the time taken by the user supplied subroutine to calculate the K-matrices. | ||
