Using correlated wave functions, oscillator strengths for transitions of the type 1s22s22pn→ 1s22s2pn+1in neutral, singly and doubly ionized B, C, N, O and F atoms are calculated. Such oscillator strengths are extremely sensitive to the details of electronelectron interactions. Comparison with results for other many-body calculations and beam-foil, phase-shift, emission and Hanle spectroscopies shows an overall agreement in the case of ionized atoms but an occasional discrepancy in the case of the neutrals. It appears that, assuming experiment is correct, in these cases one still needs a better understanding of electron correlation and its effect on oscillator strengths. © 1973.
