Nature of problem:
The program Compton cross sections performs the calculation of the cross-section profile for Compton scattering of gamma rays by the electrons of a complete subshell of an atom on the basis of nonrelativistic hydrogen-like one-electron wave functions.
Closed-form expressions for the cross-section profile are used.
For energies of the scattered gamma rays near the free-electron value convergence may be too slow.
Different effective atomic numbers may be used for the scattering electron in the initial bound state and the final continuum state, respectively.
On the Univac 1108 computer less than a few minutes are required in most cases.
