Nature of problem:
The program computes the wave function characterized by an orbital angular momentum L for the bound-states with J=L+1/2 and J=L-1/2 of a particle in a WoodS-saxon potential with spin-orbit coupling.

Solution method:
The solution of the radial Schrodinger equation for a particle in a Woods-Saxon potential is developed on a complete set of orthonormal wave functions thets NL, solutions of the radial Schrodinger equation for the harmonic oscillator potential, in the framework of Tobocman and Nagarajan's variational method.

Restrictions:
This method was only used for neutral particles. The maximum number of harmonic oscillator wave functions (NMAX) is restricted to 10. The above restiction is easy to relax by small changes in the program.
