# A program for the extraction of radiative lifetimes from experimental beam-foil intensity decay data

## Description

Title of program: HOMER Catalogue Id: AAED_v1_0 Nature of problem The problem is to analyse experimental beam-foil intensity decay data into a sum of exponential terms,each with an amplitude and lifetime parameter. The most apt number of parameters and the optimum value of each is to be determined, together with estimates of standard deviation. Method fo solution The minimum of chi-square is sought in an iterative procedure. Normal equations are obtained from a first order Taylor expansion of the multi-expotential fitting function, together with an auxiliary b ...
