Manuscript Title: Corrected ISICS program versions available due to a minor calculation error involving M3 x-ray production cross sections
Authors: Sam J. Cipolla
Program title: ISICS2011 and predecessor versions.
Catalogue identifier: ADDS_v3_1
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 184(2013)2230
Programming language: C.
Computer: PC.
Operating system: Windows systems with a 32-bit processor.
RAM: 4Mb
Keywords: Atomic K-, L-, M-shell ionization, PWBA and ECPSSR cross sections, Ion-atom collisions, C package, Gauss-Legendre quadrature integration techniques.
Classification: 16.7.

Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes

Nature of problem:
Ionization and X-ray production cross sections for ion-atom collisions.

Solution method:
Numerical integration of form factor using a logarithmic transform and Gaussian quadrature, plus exact integration limits.

Reasons for new version:
The Coster-Kronig enhancement factor for M3 shell x-ray production cross sections was found to be incorrectly calculated in all versions of ISICS (including ISICSoo, addressed separately in this issue).

Summary of revisions:
The affected program was corrected and has been replaced in each version of ISICS. The affected program for each version of ISICS is as follows: CLC3.C (ADDS_v1_0), CLChseV2.C (ADDS_v2_0, ADDS_v3_0), CLC_Rhs2.C (ADDS_v4_0, ADDS_v5_0). A newly compiled executable file has replaced existing files in all versions.

Same as in previous versions
