[en] A list is given of over 240 references concerning probabilities for forbidden transitions in atoms and ions. The period covered goes from 1968 to 1989. This bibliography is indexed according to the species treated in each of the selected publications
[en] Atomic parity violation has been observed in the 6s21S0→5d6s 3D1 408-nm forbidden transition of ytterbium. The parity-violating amplitude is found to be 2 orders of magnitude larger than in cesium, where the most precise experiments to date have been performed. This is in accordance with theoretical predictions and constitutes the largest atomic parity-violating amplitude yet observed. This also opens the way to future measurements of neutron distributions and anapole moments by comparing parity-violating amplitudes for various isotopes and hyperfine components of the transition.
[en] Possible forbidden transitions are suggested as sources of satellites for the study of plasma turbulence. These transitions are in argon and neon and have some advantages over previously used helium lines
[en] The electric dipole transitions of excited ions moving slowly in plasmas are studied. The results show that some transitions forbidden for excited ions at rest become allowed for moving excited ions. The transition rates change with varying speed of the ions. Forbidden transitions are strongly influenced by the speed, non-forbidden transitions are weakly influenced
[en] We have obtained CCD images of the shock front at the eastern rim of Puppis A in (Fe X) lambda 6374 and (Fe XIV) lambda 5303 and have compared the optical data to Einstein HRI soft X-ray data. The observed part of the remnant is complex, containing density irregularities. Optical and X-ray data are consistent in showing a nearly flat gradient of ionization behind the shock. To determine conditions in the shock, scans of surface brightness across it in the optical lines were compared to surface brightnesses predicted by idealized Sedov models. We were unable to match both the red and green line scans by a simple, single-component model, and have ascribed the failure to the presence of the density inhomogeneities. Our result has important implications for the determination of SNR shock front models by means of fitting X-ray data with Sedov models
[en] The flux and line shape of the fine-structure transitions of Ne II and Ne III at 12.8 and 15.55 μm and of the forbidden transitions of O I λ6300 are calculated for young stellar objects with a range of mass-loss rates and X-ray luminosities using the X-wind model of jets and the associated wide-angle winds. For moderate and high accretion rates, the calculated Ne II line luminosity is comparable to or much larger than produced in X-ray irradiated disk models. All of the line luminosities correlate well with the main parameter in the X-wind model, the mass-loss rate, and also with the assumed X-ray luminosity-and with one another. The line shapes of an approaching jet are broad and have strong blue-shifted peaks near the effective terminal velocity of the jet. They serve as a characteristic and testable aspect of jet production of the neon fine-structure lines and the O I forbidden transitions.
