Notes

Abstract: The non-linear least-squares routine KPS1 is presented for the analysis of data from counting experiments which follow single exponential decays. It gives appropriate weighting to individual points, is compact (52 statements) and converges more rapidly than the widely used CURFIT program of Bevington. The routine quantifies the goodness of fit and the uncertainty in the decay coefficient. KPS1 is particularly useful for microcomputer analysis when interfaced directly to laboratory equipment. A FORTRAN listing is included which may easily be adapted for BASIC.
