Nature of problem:
The program calculates the total cross section of a multiparticle final state as a function of total energy, when the matrix element is of the form exp(a1t1 + a2t2 +...+ an-1tn-1). This cross section is proportional to the volume of peripheral phase space.
The program is based on a recursive integration formula. At each recursion step the same integrand is integrated over many different integration areas, which are two-dimensional and bounded by a hyperbola and a straight line. The two-dimensional integrals are calculated by a method based on Simpson's formula.
Mutliplicity of the final state between 3 and 20.
2 min for about 5 per cent accuracy, multiplicities 3-8 and 100 energy values.
