PRE-EQUILIBRIUM PROCESSES IN NUCLEAR REACTIONS: INTERCOMPARISON OF THEORIES AND CODES
Nuclear Physics Laboratory, Oxford, U.K.
The present status of the theories and the associated computer codes that are used to calculate the cross-sections of pre-equilibrium processes in nuclear reactions is reviewed. The principal theories used at the present time are the varieties of exciton models and the quantum-mechanical theories. The codes used to calculate the direct interaction and compound nucleus cross-sections are also mentioned.
