C                                                                      
C       PURPOSE:    TO EVALUATE THE BOUND BOUND GAUNT FACTOR USING THE
C                   EXPRESSION OUTLINED BY BURGESS.A AND SUMMERS.H.P [1].
C
C       BACKGROUND: THE BOUND BOUND GAUNT FACTOR IS USED IN THE 
C                   EVALUATION OF THE EINSTEIN A COEFFICIENT. THE
C                   EINSTEIN A COEFFICIENT IS USUALLY EXPRESSED IN 
C                   TERMS OF THE UPWARD OSCILLATOR STRENGTH [2].
C                   HOWEVER,IT IS MORE CONVIENIENT TO WRITE THE
C                   UPWARD OSCILLATOR STRENGTH IN TERMS OF WHAT IS
C                   DESCRIBED AS AN APPROXIMATE UPWARD OSCILLATOR 
C                   STRENGTH.THE BOUND BOUND GAUNT FACTOR IS A 
C                   CORRECTION TO THE APPROXIMATE OSCILLATOR 
C                   STRENGTH [3].
