Nature of problem:
The program analyzes the experimental data on gamma-ray internal conversion and determines the multipolarity mixing parameter and penetration parameter of the magnetic component for the nuclear electromagnetic transitions.

Solution method:
The best values of the parameters are found by the least-squares method. Due to the nonlinearity of the problem, the Gauss linearization method is used. The iterations are performed until the change in the least- squares sum is less than 0.1%. If this condition is not fulfilled within 100 iterations, the execution is terminated. All operations are performed using double precision.

For a particular nuclear transition, a maximum of 25 experimental data items can be treated simultaneously. The program is not suitable for studying the hindered E1 transitions.

Running time:
The running time depends mostly on the guess values of the parameters (given via input) and is typically 1 to 3 s per transition analyzed.
