Abstract : A computer program for the analysis of magnetic field problems involving ferromagnetic materials is described. A discussion of the equations describing such problems, the boundary conditions employed, and the method of modeling on a digital computer is presented. Finally, in four appendices, the difference expressions for Laplace's equation and the non-linear magnetic equation are derived, the boundary approximations used in the computer program are presented and explained, and the general make-up and use of the program in its time sharing format is described.
