Caption: 5th in a sequence of 5 CRAY 1 computer graphic images of a collision between the nucleus of a krypton atom & the nucleus of a lanthanum atom. The false colours represent the density levels of matter inside the two nuclei. The pictures represent the solution of 146 simultaneous wave functions & took approximately 1hour of the CRAY 1's computing time. (1982)
