Keywords: Atomic physics, Atomic orbital, Bound state, Continuum state, Numerical hartree-fock, Structure.
Classification: 2.1.

Nature of problem:
Numerical fixed core or frozen core Hartree-Fock results are determined for one bound or continuum orbital of an atom.

Solution method:
The Hartree-Fock equation is converted to an integral equation and numerically integrated. Exchange terms are included through Marriott's method.

The energy of the continuum electron is restricted (by numerical error) to a few hundred eV. If large atoms are attempted, shortage of computer time may impose a restriction.

Running time:
The CPU time for the test case was 90 s on Large Core Storage (slow core) or approximately 15 s on Main Core (fast core).
