Abstract

The effect of correlation on transitions in Mo vi from 4p64d 2D and 4p65s 2S to 4p64f, 4p65p, 4p65f, 4p54d2 with J = 1/2 - 7/2 is investigated. Non-relativistic correlation studies show the near degeneracy of 4p54d2(3F) 2Fo and 4p54d2(1G) 2Fo configuration state functions and their strong interaction with 4p65f 2Fo. The multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock method is used to include relativistic effects and correlation simultaneously. Wave function composition is compared with other theory and with the least squares fitted values recently published by Reader (J. Phys. B: 43, 074024 (2010)). Transition probability data are provided along with data required for accessing accuracy. Results are compared with other published values.
