Nature of problem:
Calculate the cross-section for electron capture in a high energy ion- atom collision.

Solution method:
The program is based on the continnum distorted wave (CDW) method of Cheshire as generalized to complex systems by the authors. The initial orbital of the captured electron is supposed to be described by a linear combination of Slater type orbitals. The final orbital is a hydrogenic one.

The impact energy should be greater than 80 sup{|epsiloni|, |epsilonf|} keV/amu where epsiloni and epsilonf are the initial and final orbital energies of the captured electron expressed in atomic units. The orbitals should be of the types 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 2p, 3p.

Running time:
The running time fioor the test run on the IRIS 80 is 0.64 min.
