KANTBP 4M Program for Solving the Scattering Problem for a System of Ordinary Second-Order Differential Equations
We report an upgrade of the program KANTBP 4M implemented in the computer algebra system MAPLE for solving, with a given accuracy, the multichannel scattering problem, which is reduced to a boundary-value problem for a system of ordinary differential equations of the second order with continuous or piecewise continuous real or complex-valued coefficients. The solution over a finite interval is subject to mixed homogeneous boundary conditions: Dirichlet and/or Neumann, and/or of the third kind. The discretization of the boundary problem is implemented by means of the finite element method with the Lagrange or Hermite interpolation polynomials. The efficiency of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated by solving a multichannel scattering problem with coupling of channels in both the reaction region and the asymptotic one.
