Abstract A computer program for calculating transition probabilities for rotationally and translationally inelastic scattering of homonuclear diatomic molecules from static, corrugated surfaces is described. The program uses an exact quantum-mechanical method which combines a close-coupling expansion of the internal states with a time-dependent wave-packet description of the center-of-mass motion. The wave function is propagated in time using an expansion of the time-evolution operator in a series of ... Title of program: CCWPSURF Catalogue Id: ABTS_v1_0 Nature of problem The transition probabilities are calculated for rotationally and translationally inelastic scattering of a homonuclear diatomic molecule from a static, corrugated surface with a rectangular surface unit cell.
