The report describes the RESALE-1 computer program for calculating laser action in a chemically reacting gas. The program is applicable to either a one-dimensional steady flow or a time-dependent quiescent gas. A constant-gain method of solution is used to obtain the intensity and to account for population changes due to lasing. Vibrational populations are treated individually and thus are not in equilibrium. Rotational populations, however, are assumed to be in a Boltzmann distribution at the translational temperature. The report contains a detailed description of the formulation of the equations, the numerical methods used, and input preparation. Author
