The R-matrix propagation method for solving the close coupled equations for inelastic scattering is presented. The method is shown to be fast, accurate, and stable without the need for stabilizing transformations. We demonstrate the use of this method for two model close coupling problems, and investigate the rate of convergence of the solutions.
