Abstract

Three subroutines are described for the very fast calculation of bound-bound, bound-free, and free-free cross-sections for nonrelativistic hydrogenic systems of arbitrary nuclear charge and reduced mass. The first two are essentially exact, being based on recursion relations which are known to be stable. The third evaluates the thermally-averaged free-free Gaunt factor by means of a two-dimensional Chebyshev expansion calculated by numerical evaluation of the cross-sections expressed as hypergeometric functions, augmented by other analytical approximations.
