Nature of problem:
Solutions to coupled Schrodinger radial equations are calculated for real multipole potentials. The method is particularly suited to Coulomb excitation of heavy ions where multiple coupling is significant to large radii. The subroutine is designed to be used within existing conventional coupled channels codes.
The piecewise analytic method of Gordon  is used. The integration range is divided into segments. In each segment the potential is approximated by a straight line and analytic solutions for the straight line potentials (Airy functions) are calculated. First and second order corrections for the approximation of the potential are applied by analytic integrals. Matrix methods are used to find solutions that are continuous and smooth at each boundary.
The potentials must be real and expressed as a inverse power series of r. The method is not stable in classically forbidden regions (E<V). The subroutine returns the solution and derivative at the end point with no information on the behaviour within the integration region.
