CONTIN
Applications:
 Inversion of data represented by linear algebraic or integral
equations, such as general analysis of multiexponential decay (Laplace
inversion) or estimating secondary structure from
circular dichroism;
 Most aspects of the problem can be easily modified in small
useroriented modules; too many applications to list here have been
implemented by users;
 Running in hundreds of laboratories with a wide variety of computers.
The methods are described in:

analysis of polydispersity with photon correlation spectroscopy. Makromol.
