Solution method:
LPOTp calculates elastic or charge exchange scattering of nucleons from spin 0 and 1/2 nuclei by computing a momentum-space, optical potential starting with nucleon-nucleon (NN) phase shifts and nuclear matter and spin form factors. The potential is projected onto the angular-momentum basis, inserted into coupled, one-dimensional, integral equations, and the equations are solved by matrix inversion. The output is the proton- nucleus observables: all components of the spin-dependent amplitude plus differential and total cross-sections. The potential incorporates independent form factors for the matter and spin distributions of neutrons and protons, nucleon recoil and binding effects, Lorentz- invariant relations among amplitudes and kinematical variables in different reference frames, recent NN phase shifts, theoretical off- energy-shell behaviour for the NN t-matrix generated from a separable potential, and the option of removing meson-exchange-current contributions to the form factors of the three-nucleon system.
