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 inter-related, such as the geomagnetic co-ordinate conversion and magnetic field determinations, while others range from radar-trajectory 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 TRAJ-1, Proton and Electron Ionosphere Models ION, Magnetic Field and B and L Determination FIELD, Geomagnetic Co-ordinate Conversion GEOMAG, Transcendental Equation Analysis OPTIC.
