Abstract : The objective of this analytical study is to provide a simple computer program to reduce externally measured optical data from axi-symmetric sources to internal state distributions. This is achieved by using MIMIC program language to write a short, easily applied program to perform the Abel inversion. Clear and complete instructions are given so that any person may use the program to reduce experimentally determined lateral profiles to radial internal distributions. (Author)
