In studies of hydrogenic systems via the recursive residue generation method (RRGM) the major bottleneck is the matrix vector product HC, between the Hamiltonian matrix H and a Lanczos vector C. For highly excited states and/or strong perturbations the size of H grows fast leading to storage problems. By making-use of direct methods, i.e. avoidance of explicit construction on of large Hamiltonian matrices, such problems can be overcome. Utilizing the underlying analytical properties of the Laguerre basis e(-lambdar)L(k)2I+2(2lambdar) a direct RRGM (D-RRGM) for the unperturbed hydrogenic Hamiltonian is derived, changing the storage needs from scaling as N2 to 4N where N is the number of radial functions for each factorized H-0(l, m) block with the possibility of parallel processing. A further computational simplification is introduced by putting the expression for the photoionization (PI) cross section in the rational form conventionally used in the representation of density or states (DOS). This allows the construction of the PI cross section directly from the tridiagonal Lanczos matrix avoiding the explicit calculation of individual eigenvalues and eigenvectors. To illustrate and verify the method the PI cross section for a hydrogen atom in a static electric field, for both pi and cr polarization, was calculated for an electric field strength of F = 5714 V cm-1. Sufficiently large basis sets could be employed so that good comparison with experiment and other theoretical work was obtained, including the field-induced modulations near the zero-field ionization limit.
