Transition Probabilities of Trans-iron Elements
The PhD thesis project focuses on the calculation of transitions probabilities of trans-iron elements from copper to barium with a pseudo-relativistic Hartree-Fock approach. The newly calculated data will be used to identify spectral lines and to determine element abundances in hot white dwarfs.
