Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 43(1987)399
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: IBM 370, MODEL 158.
Operating system: VM/370.
RAM: 3K words
Word size: 32
Peripherals: disc.
Keywords: Solid state physics, Thermal expansion, Gruneisen parameter, Debye temperature, Cubic crystals, Daniels, de Launay, Crystal structure.
Classification: 7.8.

Nature of problem:
This program calculates the Gruneisen parameter for cubic crystals at low temperatures, gamma el 0.

Solution method:
For cubic crystals the low temperature elastic Gruneisen parameter gamma el 0 is calculated from elastic data using de Launay's tables [1-3]; the elastic Debye temperature theta el 0 is also obtained.

Running time:
On the IBM/370 Model 158, ten runs take about 5 s.
