dc.description.abstractWe present a highly accurate, ab initio recursive algorithm for evaluating the Wigner 3 j and 6 j symbols. Our method makes use of two-term, nonlinear recurrence relations that are obtained from the standard three-term recurrence relations satisfied by these quantities. The use of two-term recurrence relations eliminates the need for rescaling of iterates to control numerical overflows and thereby simplifies the widely used recursive algorithm of Schulten and Gordon.en_US
