Abstract We describe our Metropolis Monte Carlo computer code for the microcanonical calculation of the fragmentation of a hot nucleus. It is applicable for nuclei with excitation energies on the order of 1–20 MeV per nucleon, such as might be created in intermediate-energy heavy-ion collisions. The code creates complete, individual events in which both energy and mass are exactly conserved, and will write the individual events as well as perform analyses. The events are created by sampling the phase ... Title of program: MCFRAG Catalogue Id: ACNH_v1_0 Nature of problem Recently it has been shown experimentally that highly excited nuclei will deexcite by fragmentation into one or more heavy pieces. New detectors enable experimentalists to measure exclusive quantities, including fluctuations and correlations. It is desirable to have models of this process capable of generating a large sample of events covering a wide region of the relevant phase space.
