The catalogue has been constructed by using theoretical least squares fits of published spectral lines to accepted molecular models. The associated predictions and their estimated errors are based upon the resultant fitted parameters and their covariances. Future versions of this catalogue will add more atoms and molecules and update the present listing (331 species) as new data appear.
select="sqrt(%Rad) < %lum**2/(%D_0 + %R_0)"
Note: the old pre-1994 catalog will need c%s.ed4.gz and catdir.ed4. The maryland version needs TAB_PP set to /lma/spectra.
