Manuscript Title: A computer program for the calculation of angular momentum coupling coefficients.
Authors: D.F. Fang, J.F. Shriner Jr
Program title: COEFF
Catalogue identifier: ACGY_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 70(1992)147
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: VAX.
Operating system: VMS.
RAM: 200K words
Word size: 32
Keywords: General purpose, Rotation group, Angular momentum Coefficients.
Classification: 4.1.

Nature of problem:
Values for angular momentum coupling coefficients are required for a variety of physical situations.

Solution method:
The program represents all numbers as arrays of prime factors, and the necessary arithmetic is performed on those arrays.

Large values of angular momenta may cause overflows.

Unusual features:
The results are expressed in rational form (the quotient of two integers multiplied by the square root of the quotient of two integers).

Running time:
Typical time <= 1s for a single coefficient.
