BSR: B-spline atomic R-matrix code

BSR is a general program to calculate atomic continuum processes, including electron-atom and electron-ion scattering, and radiative processes such as bound-bound transitions, photoionization and polarizabilities. BSR uses the B-spline R-matrix method as its means of solution, with calculations performed in either LS- or intermediate coupling schemes which include terms of the Breit-Pauli Hamiltonian.
