Nature of problem:
This program computes the "form factor" and the electrical resistivity of a liquid nearly-free-electron metal.

Solution method:
Form of the "form factor" within the screened uniform charge model is used. The on-shell matrix elements of the pseudopotential are computed using the Born approximation. Ziman's formula for the electrical resistivity is numerically evaluated by using Simpson's rule.

Restrictions:
In the Born approximation angular momenta l < 10 are used. In the integration of the resistivity formula, intervals < 200 are considered. Otherwise dimensions may be altered to increase the scope of the program.

Running time:
Compile time: 2 s; Execution of sample data: 2 s.
