Description

We present the C++ library SU3lib for accurate computation of SU(3) Wigner coupling and Racah recoupling coefficients. It is built on the efficient mathematical algorithm originally proposed by Draayer and Akiyama [1]. The presented library extends the reach of this algorithm towards large SU(3) irreducible representations and outer multiplicities that were heretofore inaccessible due to floating-point precision errors. As large irreducible representations of SU(3) play an important role in medium- and heavy-mass atomic nuclei, SU3lib expands the scope of approaches to nuclear structure and reactions that rely on available SU(3) coupling-recoupling coefficients.
