Nature of problem:
The program calculates bound wavefunctions, eikonal S-matrices, total cross sections and momentum distributions of interest in nuclear knockout reactions at intermediate energies.

Solution method:
Solves the radial Schrödinger equation for bound states. A Numerov integration is used outwardly and inwardly and a matching at the nuclear surface is done to obtain the energy and the bound state wavefunction with good accuracy. The S-matrices are obtained using eikonal wavefunctions and the "t-ρρ" method to obtain the eikonal phase-shifts. The momentum distributions are obtained by means of a gaussian expansion of integrands. Main integrals are performed with the Simpson's method.

Running time:
Almost all CPU time is consumed by calculations of integrals, specially for transverse momentum distributions which involves multiple integral loops. It takes up to 30 min on a 2GHz Intel P4-processor machine.
