Abstract In the first part of this paper we present a FCN subroutine of the program MINUIT (developed in CERN Geneva by F. James and M. Roos) able to perform deconvolutions of experimental curves in up to 13 peaks. The number of peaks, their analytical dependence and their symmetry can be defined interactively by the user. In the second part different examples are given which demonstrate the high degree of versatility of this software. Title of program: ASYMGRAD Catalogue Id: ACJL_v1_0 Nature of problem The deconvolution of experimental spectra can be reduced to a problem of least squares and solved by MINUIT [1] minimization routines [2,3,4]. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ACJL_v1_0; ASYMGRAD; 10.1016/0010-4655(93)90110-X This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
