Classification: 17.9.

Nature of problem:
This is a version of the program OPTICS which has been modified to run on the PDP-15 computer.

These are the same as in Comp. Phys. Commun. 5(1973)69, except that the the maximum number of L-values has been increased to 80 and the maximum number of radial mesh points has been increased to 400.

Unusual features:
The program is designed for PDP-15 computers with DECtape input. This program is available from the CPC Program Library in card image form on DECtape only.

Running time:
As in OPTICS with Tc=200 for the computer multiply time in mu sec for an operating system using software for multiplication.
