Nature of problem:
The calculation of atomic properties and level structures is based on the evaluation of many-particle matrix elements of physical operators. For symmetry-adapted functions, the matrix element for a given tensor operator A^K of rank K can be expressed as Sigmaj,k coeff(j,k)(gammaj Jj||A^K||gammak Jk) by using the (reduced) coefficients of fractional parentage and the reduced matrix elements of the (unit) standard tensors T^k or W^kqkj. These reduced coefficients and matrix elements are frequently applied to both the configuration interaction and multi-configuration Dirac-Fock method  as well as to many-body perturbation theory .
A new combination of second quantization and quasispin methods with the theory of angular momentum and irreducible tensor operators leads to a more efficient evaluation of (many-particle) matrix elements and to faster computer codes . Practical implementations of this new scheme will support not only large-scale computations on open-shell atoms but may even help to develop programs for calculating the angular parts of (effective) one- and two-particle operators for many-body perturbation theory (in higher orders) in the future.
For jj-coupled subshells states, our module provides coefficients and matrix elements for all subshells (nj) with j=1/2, 3/2, 5/2, 7/2, and 9/2.
The interactive version of RCFP can be used as an "electronic tabulation" of standard quantities for evaluating general matrix elements for jj-coupled functions.
All real variables are parametrized by a selected kind parameter and, thus, can be adapted to any required precision if supported by the compiler. Currently, the kind parameter is set to double precision (two 32-bit words) as it is for other components of the RATIP package .
For large computations, the running time depends on the shell structure and the size of the wave function expansion for a given atomic system. However, the program promptly responds in its interactive mode if only single coefficients and matrix elements are to be calculated.
