Nature of problem:
SU3 contains SU2 X U1 and SU3 contains R3 Wigner coefficients as well as SU3 Racah coefficients are calculated for arbitrary couplings and multiplicity.

Solution method:
A build-up process based on the Biedenharn-Louck prescription for specifying the outer multiplicity is employed to generate SU3 contains SU2 X U1 Wigner coefficients. SU3 Racah coefficients follow through standard recoupling formulae. SU3 contains R3 Wigner coefficients are obtained from the corresponding SU3 contains SU2 X U1 Wigner coefficients via unitary transformation coefficients relating SU3 contains SU2 X U1 and SU3 contains R3 basis states.

Factorials M!, M<= Mmax = 32, and binomial coefficients (NM),M <= N<= Nmax = 32, are stored in common. Typically for SU3 contains SU2 X U1 Wigner coefficients Lambda 1 + Lambda 2 + Lambda 3 <= Mmax whereas for SU3 contains R3 Wigner coefficients lambda + mu + L <= Nmax. The limits Mmax and Nmax may be altered by modifying one and only one subprogram.
