ASYMPT

A FORTRAN program is presented which calculates asymptotics of potential curves and adiabatic potentials with an accuracy of O(ρ−2) in the framework of the hyperspherical adiabatic (HSA) approach. Here, ρ is the hyperradius. It is shown that matrix elements of the equivalent operator corresponding to the perturbation ρ−2 have a simple form in the basis of the Coulomb parabolic functions in the body-fixed frame and can be easily computed for high values of total orbital momentum and threshold number. The second-order corrections to the adiabatic curves are obtained as the eigenvalues of the corresponding secular equation. The eigenvectors computed are used to calculate the relevant corrections to matrix elements of potential coupling. The asymptotic potentials obtained can be used for the calculation of the energy levels and radial wave functions of two-electron syste! ms in the adiabatic and coupled-channel approximations of the HSA approach and also in scattering calculations.
