for fine-structure forbidden transitions within the 4ptex2html_wrap_inline1539 (k=2-4) ground configurations of Kr III, Kr IV and Kr V have been calculated using the Breit-Pauli R-matrix technique and are tabulated in the range tex2html_wrap_inline1543. The model for the system target + electron is based on a 6- (Kr III), 7- (Kr IV) and 8-state (Kr V) close-coupling representation. The comparison with the results of the semi-relativistic R-matrix method reveals the importance of full intermediate coupling especially at low electron temperatures. Our data will enable detailed quantitative analyses of collisionally excited krypton lines in the spectra of gaseous nebulae.
