One theoretical method for studying nuclear scattering and resonances is via the multichannel algebraic scattering (MCAS) formalism. Studies to date with this method have used a simple collective-rotor prescription to model target states with which a nucleon couples. While generally these target states all belong to the same rotational band, for certain systems it is necessary to include coupling to states outside of that main band. Here, we extend MCAS to allow coupling of different strengths between such states and the rotor band. This is an essential consideration in studying the example examined herein, the scattering of neutrons from Ne22.
