Nature of problem:
The program reads the radial integrals stored on a magnetic tape or disc file by RMATRX STG1R. It then calculates the Hamiltonian matrix, the asymptotic potential coefficients and dipole length and velocity matrices. These quantities are stored on magnetic tapes or disc files for use by RMATRX STG3R or RMATRX RECUP and RMATRX RECUD.

Solution method:
The calculation is carried out in LS-coupling. The angular integrals are carried out using the techniques of Racah algebra. These are then combined with the radial integrals evaluated in RMATRX STGIR. If relativistic effects are to be included one proceeds to RMATRX STG3R via RMATRX RECUP and RMATRX RECUD.

See subroutine SETDIM of RMATRX STG2R for details of current dimensions.

Running time:
The running time depends on the square of the number of shells and the number of configurations included. The test run took 7 s on the CRAY-1.
