In am using the G4NDL library for high precision neutron cross sections at low energy. I would like to know what the files in this directory specify:
I looked in the physics manual and it seems the only possible reference is under the “Final State” section where the manual talks about the “final state files:”
Unlike the format of the cross section files, the format of the final state files is not straightforward and pretty com-plicated. Even though each of these files follows the same format rules, the actual length and appearance of each filewill depend on the specific data. The format rules of the final state files are a subset of the ENDF-6 format and a deepunderstanding of the format is required to correctly interpret the content of the files. Because of limited resources, wedo not plan to provide a complete documentation on this part in the near future.
Are the files in /Elastic/FS “final state files” and what does that mean? What part of the data evaluations (ENDF, JENDL, etc) does this information come from?
Are the files for a similar purpose to the files in /Fission/FS or /Inelastic/F13 for example?
