Abstract : Instructions for the utilization of LO5, a Monte Carlo procedure for performing neutron and gamma ray penetration and scattering calculations on the IBM-7090, have been rewritten to clarify and add detail to the previous instructions. The revised utilization instructions apply to the original LO5 Code as well as to the RRA version of LO5 which has been modified to enhance its applicability to general shielding calculations. A description of the principal mathematical relations used by the code in the solution of neutron and gamma ray transport problems is included. Detailed definitions and formats for the input data which comprise problem deck and the energy and element library decks are given. In addition, peculiarities in the input data requirements discovered in extensive use of the code are discussed. General operational information for running the code on the IBM-7090 are also given.
