Abstract : A FORTRAN II program for IBM 704 was written to compute the beta spectra of fission product mixtures. The computation for individual fission products is based on the Fermi Theory of Beta Decay, with a correction for unique first-forbidden transitions. Output is produced as printed tables. Input data, from which spectra of the individual nuclides may be calculated, are tabulated. Instructions for use of the program are given, and the program itself is listed. (Author)
