2. How COSP works


  1. a Q1 file of multi-run type, which defines the experimental conditions which PHOENICS is required to simulate;
  2. a "target data" file which contains the experimental data, for each of these conditions, with which it is desired that the PHOENICS predictions should agree;
  3. a preliminary set of values of the constants which it is desired to optimise;
  4. information about how close a fit it is desired to achieve.
