Abstract

Multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock electric quadrupole (E2) and magnetic dipole (M1) transition probabilities are reported for transitions between levels of $3d^5$ in {Fe~\sc{iv}.} The accuracy of the {\sl ab initio} energy levels and the agreement in the length and velocity forms of the line strength for the E2 transitions are used as ``indicators of accuracy''. The present E2 and M1 transition probabilities are compared with earlier Breit-Pauli results and other theories, including the values published by Garstang in 1958.
