3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The asymmetry factor S of Mott's differential cross section for the scattering of electrons and positrons by point nuclei without screening is calculated for any energy, atomic number and angle of scattering.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

We have summed the conditionally convergent series, F and G, appearing in the asymmetry factor using two consecutive transformations: The one of Yennie, Ravenhall and Wilson and that of Euler till we have seven times six significant figures repeated in the factor S.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Those appearing in the use of Mott's cross section for unscreened point nuclei.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

On an HP9000/800 less than 1.0 seconds except for very low angles and high atomic numbers, reaching even 5.0 s. This limit running time can be seriously reduced up to 0.70 s on a
Convex Computer with scalar optimization and even to 0.25 s with the vectorization compiler directive.

On COMPAQ deskpro EN, Pentium III 330MHz:
MAIN.FOR, 10 seconds
less than 1 second for a single call to subroutine MUTIL.
