Theoretical calculations of oscillator strengths and Landé g
made with the Cowan code are presented for the
rare-earth ion Nd III
. The emphasis is on
transitions in the optical region of the spectrum.
Comparisons of previous ab initio calculations of this type
for other lanthanides (e.g., La II
, Ce III
, and Lu II
with published experimental and theoretical data suggest that
the accuracy of the log(gf
) values for individual transitions should be about
dex in the absence of significant core polarization effects; the g
should be good to better than 5%, except in a few cases where term mixing is
important. Applications of the data are made in
the calculation of neodymium abundances in the atmospheres of the chemically peculiar stars
HD101065 ("Przybylski's star") and HD122970.
Key words: atomic data -- line: formation -- stars: chemically peculiar --
