This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract A robust and general solver for the radial Schrödinger, Dirac, and Kohn–Sham equations is presented. The formulation admits general potentials and meshes: uniform, exponential, or other defined by nodal distribution and derivative functions. For a given mesh type, convergence can be controlled systematically by increasing the number of grid points. Radial integrations are carried out using a combination of asymptotic forms, Runge–Kutta, and implicit Adams methods. Eigenfunctions are determine...
