## Description

Title of program: CLUSTER 78 Catalogue Id: ACUE_v1_0 Nature of problem The program calculates the probability of interaction of point defects, defect clusters and gas atoms using chemical rate reaction theory. The resulting set of differential equations is numerically integrated using a computer to give the number and size of the defect clusters as a function of irradiation time. The material is specified by listing certain constants and is applicable to elements and simple compounds.
