Nature of problem:Subprogram DS is a Fortran IV double precision function which calculates the reduced matrix elements of finite rotations in the angular momentum representation, using a standard phase convention. The four arguments of the FUNCTION are J2, twice the total angular momentum; MI2 and MF2, twice the z-projection of the total angular momentum in the inital and final coordinate systems, respectively and BETA, the Euler angle-of-rotation around y.. | ||

Solution method:A Wigner-closed-sum expression for djmm'(beta) is evaluated. Each term contains products of factorials. Using a method similar to that of Wills (Comp. Phys. Commun. 2(1971)381), a common coefficient (containing factorials) is evaluated by combining the logarithms of the factorials, followed by one expotentiation. The remaining expression is written, without factorials, as a nested product. This method contracts well, in speed and accuracy, with methods that evaluate factorial products in the closed-sum coefficients term-by-term, before adding. |
