Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 23(1981)43
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: CDC 7600.
Operating system: SCOPE 2.1.5.
RAM: 3K words
Word size: 60
Keywords: Solid state physics, Transport properties, Liquid metal, Binary liquid alloy, Structure factor, Resistivity, Thermopower, Packing-fraction, Hard-sphere.
Classification: 7.3, 7.9.

Nature of problem:
This program computes the structure factor of liquid metals and binary liquid alloys.

Solution method:
The formulae, based on the Percus-Yevick hard sphere model, for the structure factor given by Ashcroft and Lekner for liquid metals and by Ashcroft and Langreth for binary liquid alloys are used.

The starting value of Y which is fixed to Y=0.25 in the program may be altered if necessary. However, Y=0.0 should not be assigned in order to to avoid the problem of overflow.

Running time:
Compilation time: 0.23 s, execution time of sample data: 0.03s.
