Abstract We describe how to compute non-diagonal t-matrices related to atoms vibrating in anisotropic and/or anharmonic potentials. The formalism has been implemented in a set of FORTRAN routines that can be easily interfaced with existing Low-Energy Electron Diffraction codes, providing a simple and economical way to describe anisotropy and anharmonicity in multiple-scattering calculations. The method is based on an expansion of the atomic probability distribution function. Two different methods are ... Title of program: TMAT Catalogue Id: ADOT_v1_0 Nature of problem We describe the FORTRAN-90 program TMAT v1.1 for the computation of non-diagonal t-matrices representing anisotropic and/or anharmonic atomic vibrations. TMAT can be integrated easily in any standard Low-Energy Electron Diffraction program.
