Nature of problem:
The optical model program HERMES calculates cross sections, vector and tensor analysing powers for the elastic scattering of spin 0 to 3/2 projectiles from spin 0 targets, where the optical potential may consist of central, spin-orbit and tensor parts. All possible ranks k of analyzing powers and tensor potentials are included, where 0<k<2s. The program contains a search routine to optimise the optical model parameters to fit experimental data.
A partial wave expansion is made of the distorted waves which leads to uncoupled differential equations when the optical potential contains only central and spin-orbit terms, and coupled equations when tensor potentials are included. These differential equations are solved using a predictor-corrector Numerov integration technique, and the T-matrix is obtained by matching the solutions to Coulomb wavefunctions. Cross sections and analysing powers are calculated from the T-matrix, and a Marguardt algorithm is used to optimise the optical model parameters to fit experimental data.
(1) Projectile spins 0 to 3/2.
(2) Target spin 0.
(3) No more than 200 partial waves are allowed.
(4) No more than 500 radial integration points.
(5) No more than 800 data points; 100 for the cross sections, and 100 for each of the possible analysing powers.
The test calculation of section 1 took 8 minutes.
