Nature of problem:
Coupled muon-nuclear wave funtions, energy levels, and transitions energies and intensities are calculated. The results are corrected for nearly all effects of nuclear excitation.

Solution method:
The muon-nuclear Hamiltonian is represented in an angular-momentum basis and diagonalized to all order in a truncated subspace and to second order in the remainder of the infinite Hilbert space. The finite-space diagonalization is accomplished by standard means. The remianing diagonalization is accomplished by the implicit solution of the appropriate inhomogeneous differential equations in the muon radial coordinate using a band-matrix inversion technique.

No more than 9 muon levels and 8 nuclear levels may be included at any one time. The only magnetic interaction included is the static M1 HFS interaction.

Unusual features:
The main arrays are allocated semi-dynamically in order to keep core requirements to a minimum. Although the code as supplied is set up for CDC computers, previous versions have been run successfully on IBM 370/ 168 using the H-compiler with the AUTODOUBLE option. Use of the code on low-precision machines is recommended omly if extensive double precision is implemented.

Running time:
The code and test cases as supplied are compiled, loaded and executed in 322 s on a CDC-6600, of which 43 s are compilation (FTN compiler with optimization level 2).
