New tables of Stark broadened hydrogen Lyman, Balmer and Paschen lines are presented for a wide range of plasma conditions, allowing the complete spectrum of these series to be modelled up to the Inglis Teller limit. The formalism, based on the Model Microfield Method (MMM) for both the electronic and ionic broadenings, gives an accurate description of the line profile from the centre to the wings.

Key words: atomic data -- line profiles -- plasmas
