Nature of problem:
To obtain explicit algebraic formulas for Clebsch-Gordan coefficients for high values of angular momentum.

Solution method:
Algebraic method based on the Racah formula using the FORMAC programming language.

Restrictions:
Formac limitations. Numbers which are too large may be generated during intermediate stages of the program for high values of angular momentum.

Unusual features:
The results are algebraic formulas in which numbers can be substituted to get numerical results.

Running time:
Compilation and linkage : 7 s. Execution time depends on the values demanded: 11 s for j2 = 1/2, 3/2; 6 min for j2 = 2, 5/2, 3, 7/2, 4, 9/2.
