Nature of problem:
Construction and diagonalization of large Hamiltonian matrices, using reduced matrix elements of the d-boson creation operator.

Solution method:
Reduced matrix elements of the d-boson creation operator have been stored in data files at machine precision, after being recursively calculated with higher than machine precision. The Hamiltonian matrix is calculated and diagonalized, and the requested transition strengths are calculated using the eigenvectors.

The 1000 boson coefficients for L=0 and L=20 have been included in the IBAR distribution and the 7.3GB of data that make up the remaining coefficients for L=21 to L=2000 are available upon request.

Running time:
If the provided example is changed to include 100 bosons, the calculation requires about 1 second of run time. For 1000 bosons, the calculation requires about 9 minutes of run time.
