Nature of problem:
After having measured a real line spectrum, it is necessary to decompose it into particular lines. The present program performs this task and supplies the positions and heights of all peaks.
Every line is described by an analytic function depending on several parameters (height, position and shape parameters). The optimum values of these parameters are determined by the minimization of the function x**2 using the simplex minimization method. Moreover, a background which may also be a function of several parameters is fitted, as well.
In the present version, the program is suitable for the decomposition of the internal conversion spectra. To apply it to spectra of different types, the line shape should probably be modified (see long write-up for details). A maximum of 20 parameters can be used. The spectrum to be decomposed must be given in no more than 150 points.
The running time depends on the number of parameters fitted. The test run needed ~~ 8.5 min of CPU time.
