Abstract

An accurate knowledge of atomic collision processes is important for a better understanding of many astrophysical and laboratory plasmas. Collision databases which contain electron-impact excitation, ionization, and recombination cross sections and temperature dependent rate coefficients have been constructed using perturbative distorted-wave methods and non-perturbative R-matrix pseudo-states and time-dependent close-coupling methods. We present recent atomic collision results.
