Abstract : The report describes the analysis and programming required in the development of eight computer programs which cover a wide variety of scientific research. Some of these investigations are interrelated, such as the geomagnetic coordinate conversion and magnetic field determinations, while others range from radartrajectory analysis to electromagnetic theory. For each case, this report describes the mathematical development as well as the programming aspects in order to more completely define the problems and increase their applicability. While the problem descriptions of this document are mathematically oriented, the sections explaining the programming aspects of each problem are designed to facilitate the use of the computer programs by programmer and scientist alike. The specific topics covered in this report are: Orbiting Geophysical Observatory (OGO), Scattering Integration Analysis (SCATT), Electromagnetic Integration Analysis (INTE), Trajectory Analysis for Single Station Radar (TRAJ1), Proton and Electron Ionosphere Models (ION), Magnetic Field and B and L Determination (FIELD), Geomagnetic Coordinate Conversion (GEOMAG), Transcendental Equation Analysis (OPTIC).
