The configuration-space Faddeev equations for the breakup scattering problem are solved using a new method of partial inversion. Unlike other computations this one keeps the incoming wave in the asymptotic conditions. Using the standard spline-decomposition for the angle variable and Numerov’s method for the hyperradius optimizes considerably the inversion due to the sparse block structure of the matrix. We report on calculations of the inelasticities and phase shifts, as well as the breakup amplitudes for nucleon-deuteron scattering for laboratory energies 14.1 and 42.0 MeV. The results are compared with calculations of other authors.
