TIGER is a digital computer program written in FORTRAN IV for calculation of detonation parameters of condensed explosives. The central problem is the calculation of conditions in the Chapman-Jouguet detonation wave. Subsidiary problems are calculations of the properties of the detonation products along the Hugoniot curve, along isentropes (or along curves where other variables are held constant), or at specified points or grids of points. TIGER may also be used for detonations in gases and for direct solution of chemical equilibria at specified values of two state variables. In this volume the formulas developed in Volume 1 are reorganized in an order that parallels the mathematical approach that has been programmed. Those interested in understanding the program will find it necessary to read this volume.
