Manuscript Title: MRVAC: a variational correction method for solving differential
equations with r**-n coupling. | ||

Authors: M.R.H. Rudge | ||

Program title: MRVAC | ||

Catalogue identifier: ACCV_v1_0Distribution format: gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 34(1984)187 | ||

Programming language: Fortran. | ||

Computer: VAX 11/750. | ||

RAM: 100K words | ||

Word size: 3 | ||

Keywords: General purpose, Differential equation, Asymptotic solutions, Scattering. | ||

Classification: 4.3. | ||

Nature of problem:A wide variety of scattering problems can be reduced to solving sets of coupled differential equations wherein the coupling can be represented as a matrix series in r**-n at large values of r. The program is designed to produce solutions of the equations at an input value r = Ro, and to calculate a K-matrix to a specified accuracy from an input R-matrix at r = Ro. | ||

Solution method:A variational correction technique described by Rudge is used in the program. | ||

Restrictions:The code is written for completeness to include the Coulomb case (an r-1 coupling) but the current version handles this case much less efficiently than the non-Coulomb cases for which it is primarily designed. An accuracy check is a feature of the program but if this is not met within a certain number of iterations then there is a cut-out in the program which flags cases where this occurs. | ||

Running time:A twenty channel problem takes about two minutes on the VAX 11/750 mini- computer. |
