Nature of problem:KLEIN computes relativistic Schrodinger (Klein-Gordon) equation solutions, i.e. Coulomb functions for real lambda > - 1, F lambda (eta,x), G lambda (eta,x), F'lambda (eta,x) and G'lambda (eta,x) for real x > 0 and real eta, -10**4 < eta < 10**4. Hence it is also suitable for Bessel and spherical Bessel functions. Accuracies are in the range 10**-14 -10**-16 in oscillating region, and approximately 10**-30 on an extended precision compiler. The program is suitable for generating Klein-Gordon wavefunctions for matching in pion and kaon physics. | ||

Solution method:An extended version of Steed's method used previously for integer lambda in subroutine RCWFN, is adopted. | ||

Restrictions:The standard version loses accuracy as x>xlamda (the turning point) and eventually when G>~10**6 the subroutine is ineffective; a JWKB approximation and full information is output. | ||

Running time:The test deck took about 2 s to run on the G1 compiler, and HX compiler; with AUTODBLE and REAL*16 variables the same deck took 76 s (ACCUR = 10**-16) and 109 s (ACCUR = 10**-33). Note that about one half the time demonstrates error conditions. |
