Nature of problem:This program allows one to study the scattering of an electron by an atom or ion with configuration (np)**q, where n=2 or 3, and q can take all values between 0 and 6, under the assumption that all the ground state trms are "closely coupled", but no excited terms contribute. | ||

Unusual features:To obtain sufficient accuracy for numerical stability double precision is required on the IBM 360 series. This has not been necessary when using machines with 36 bit words. | ||

Running time:The time required depends on N, the number of equations, and on NE, the number of exchange terms. For electron-carbon scattering with N=2, NE= 7 (L=0, S=1/2, Phi=even), the time required on the IBM 360/65 is 0.96 minutes. For the case L=2, S=1/2, Phi=even, we have N=5, NE=19 and the time required is 5.05 minutes. |
