A program was made using the direct Besk code for the molecular A and B functions. These functions were printed in a duplicated table still available at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Stockholm. The index here goes from 0 to 8 and the A and B functions are printed for arguments alpha and beta between 0 and 50. In the region between 0 and 10 the intervals are 0.01 and in the region between 10 and 50 the intervals are 0.1. So this table is very comprehensive. It contains 150 pages with about 27000 A and B function values, each with 7 significant decimals and an explicit 10-exponent with 2 figures. In many cases, greater accuray is necessary than can be obtained from interpolation in the table. Hence it was found very suitable to use the A and B functions as a simple subject for an exercise in alpha programming in connection with the course for this coding system. Author
