Nature of problem:
The program computes the energy and the wave function of the s-state in a Saxon-Woods potential. It can also determine the well depth or radius which fits a given binding energy.

Solution method:
The S-matrix for negative energies is obtained analytically using a method given by Bencze. The equation giving its poles is transformed into a real equation whose solutions are the bound state energies. The wave function is obtained by integrating the Schrodinger equation using the Fox-Goodwin method.

Only s-states.

Running time:
The running time is 0.2-0.3 s for the bound state energy alone, 0.8-0.9 s if the wave function is required.
