Abstract Title of program: MEDUSA 1 Catalogue number: ABUG Program obtainable from: CPC Program Library, Queen's University of Belfast, N. Ireland (see application form in this issue) Computer: ICL 4–70; Installation: UKAEA Culham Laboratory Operating system: ICL Multijob Programming languages used: STANDARD FORTRAN High speed store required: 45000 words. No. of bits in a word: 32 Overlay structure: None No. of magnetic tapes required: None Other peripherals used: Line printer No. of cards in combined... Title of program: MEDUSA Catalogue Id: ABUG_v1_0 Nature of problem The feasibility of laser fusion as a method for generating controlled thermonuclear power has so far been mainly based on computer simulation. MEDUSA 1 has been written to investigate in one space dimension some of the hydrodynamic and plasma processes that take place in a small pellet which is irradiated by laser light.
