Abstract A 5″ × 5″ NaI(Tl) detector has been used to measure gamma-ray spectra resulting from the decay of aggregate fission products. In order to extract the true gamma-ray energy distribution from the measured spectra, the detector response functions for monoenergetic gamma rays spanning the energy range of the measurements must be determined. At present we have measured 13 such response functions in the energy range 0.081-6.13 MeV. NGRC is a program in C written to implement an interpolation scheme... Title of program: compression and lissage Catalogue Id: ADCR_v1_0 Nature of problem The storage of a great number of histograms can be an expensive operation in terms of memory size. This program allows the packing and the depacking of histograms without a too large loss of information. The rate of compresion is about 1 to 10 (identifier label included) and the method used holds some statistical properties satisfying some non parametrical tests. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADCR_v1_0; compression and lissage; 10.1016/0010-4655(95)00096-8 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
