Catalogue identifier: ACKT_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 23(1981)43
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: CDC 7600.
Operating system: SCOPE 2.1.5.
RAM: 3K words
Word size: 60
Keywords: Solid state physics, Transport properties, Liquid metal, Binary liquid alloy, Structure factor, Resistivity, Thermopower, Packing-fraction, Hard-sphere.
Classification: 7.3, 7.9.

Nature of problem:
This program computes the structure factor of liquid metals and binary liquid alloys.

Solution method:
The formulae, based on the Percus-Yevick hard sphere model, for the structure factor given by Ashcroft and Lekner for liquid metals and by Ashcroft and Langreth for binary liquid alloys are used.

Restrictions:
The starting value of Y which is fixed to Y=0.25 in the program may be altered if necessary. However, Y=0.0 should not be assigned in order to to avoid the problem of overflow.

Running time:
Compilation time: 0.23 s, execution time of sample data: 0.03s.
