Keywords: Nuclear physics, Theoretical methods, Scattering state, Inhomogeneous lippmann Schwinger equation, Coulomb problem, Coulomb-like potential, Local potential, Nonlocal potential, Separable expansion, Coulomb-sturmian Function.
Classification: 17.16.

Nature of problem:
The program calculates scattering state phase shifts and wave functions in local and nonlocal Coulomb-like potentials.

Solution method:
The inhomogeneous Lippmann-Schwinger equation of Coulomb-like potentials is solved using the separable expansion method based on the Coulomb-Sturmian functions.

The built-in potential is the spherical fish bone potential. This, however, can simulate practically all the spherical potentials used in atomic and nuclear physics.

Unusual features:
REAL*8 and COMPLEX*16 declarations are used.

Running time:
The running time depends mostly on the size of the basis. The test run took about 0.01 seconds on the Convex C220.
