Nature of problem:
This program reads the Hamiltonian matrix, the asymptotic potential coefficients and dipole length and velocity matrices. If the calculation is in LS-coupling these have been calculated in RMATRX STG2R. If relativistic effects are included and cross sections between fine structure levels required they will have been calculated in RMATRX RECUP and RMATRX RECUD. The code then diagonalizes the Hamiltonian matrix and calculates the R-matrix and its Buttle correction. Then either the electron-atom or electron-ion cross section, the photoionization cross section or beta parameter is calculated for a range of incident energies or frequencies.

Consult subroutine SETDIM of RMATRX STG3R to determine the current dimensions.

Running time:
The domainating factor is the number of channels and the time taken to solve the coupled differential equations. The test run took 30 s on a CRAY-1.
