Title of program: MAXWEL Catalogue Id: ACCF_v1_0 Nature of problem A four dimensional, nested numerical integration of the Compton cross section folded over a relativistic Maxwellian electron background is treated by adaptive quadrature techniques. Various forms in the low energy, high and low temperature limits are recovered. Computed cross sections are of interest for discrete ordinates and Monte Carlo radiation transport applications in many areas of physics and engineering.
