Nature of problem:
Program CEAN is intended for the analysis of event by event data recorded using coincidence techniques in nuclear physics experiments. Three different particle identification algorithms allow the user to isolate a certain light particle species emitted amongst others in a nuclear reaction. Three modes of operation with distinct display forms for the resulting spectra facilitate the installation of the program to varying hardware environments.

The current version is dimensioned for a maximum of 20 spectra occupying a total of 20.000 channels, 10 gates in each spectrum and 5 detectors telescopes with up to 3 detectors each.

Running time:
Running times depend on the complexity of the experimental configuration and the amount of coincident data processed.
