Abstract

The total gamma-ray production cross-sections in the energy range Eγ=0.5-10 MeV were evaluated for neutron energies from 0.8 to 18.8 MeV. The evaluations were performed using cubic spline approximation curves. The curve parameters were determined by the maximum likelihood method.

Keywords
the total gamma-ray production cross sections, cubic spline approximate curves, maximum likely hood method, method time flight
