3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

SWIMS calculates the angular dispersion of ion beams that undergo small-angle, incoherent multiple scattering by gaseous or solid media.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

SWIMS uses the tabulated angular distributions  of Sigmund and Winterbon for a Thomas-Fermi screened Coulomb potential. The fraction of the incident beam scattered into a cone defined by the polar angle is computed as a function of that angle for a reduced thickness over the rang of 0.01 to 10.
