Abstract

A FORTRAN 77 program that calculates fusion cross sections and mean angular momenta of the compound nucleus under the influence of couplings between the relative motion and several nuclear collective motions is presented. The no-Coriolis approximation is employed to reduce the dimension of coupled-channel equations. The program takes into account the effects of nonlinear couplings to all orders, which have been shown to play an important role in heavy-ion fusion reactions at subbarrier energies.
