Nature of problem:
This program reads Hamiltonian matrices and long range potential coefficients calculated in LS-coupling by RMATRX STG2R. Using this information it constructs matrix elements of the Breit-Pauli Hamiltonian and long-range potential coefficients in pair coupling. These quantities are stored on magnetic tape or disc files for use by RMATRX RECUD and RMATRX STG3R.

Solution method:
Hamiltonian matrices and long range potential coefficients calculated in LS-coupling by RMATRX STG2R are transformed, by means of a unitary transformation to pair-coupling. Angular integrals of the spin-orbit operator are evaluated in LSJ-coupling using Racah algebra. These are added to the spin-orbit radial integrals originally calculated in RMATRX STG2R. These matrices are then transformed by means of a unitary transformation, to pair-coupling and added to the transformed matrices from RMATRX STG2R to form matrix elements of the Breit-Pauli Hamiltonian.

See subroutine SETDIM in RMATRX RECUP for details of current dimensions.

Running time:
The running time depends on the number of channels, target states and configurations included. The test run took 3 s on the CRAY-1.
