Nature of problem:
This program computes the "form factor" and the electrical resistivity of a liquid nearly-free-electron metal.

Solution method:
Form of the "form factor" within the screened uniform charge model is used. The on-shell matrix elements of the pseudopotential are computed using the Born approximation. Ziman's formula for the electrical resistivity is numerically evaluated by using Simpson's rule.

In the Born approximation angular momenta l < 10 are used. In the integration of the resistivity formula, intervals < 200 are considered. Otherwise dimensions may be altered to increase the scope of the program.

Compile time: 2 s; Execution of sample data: 2 s.
