Abstract

Computational problems have been reported in the literature regarding application of Bleck's method to the collision-breakup equation. It is found that straightforward calculation of the Bleck integrals can involve an inordinate number of iterations to achieve convergence. The sources of the problem have been identified, and detailed modifications are given to provide rapid convergence.
