Abstract : A Fortran IV computer program is presented for the calculation of small-signal gain and maximum available energy for CO2-N2-H2O gasdynamic lasers. In comparison to an earlier version, the present program contains several computational improvements which result in a dramatic, order-of-magnitude reduction in computation time. These improvements are discussed in detail. (Author)
