Abstract

A practical solution to the least squares adjustment of an atomic energy-level array is described. This solution, in addition to the obvious advantages of satisfying the condition of least squares and providing a measure of the standard error of the computed results, has the added advantage of being a solution readily adapted to computer use. As a computer program, the method uses a minimum of memory space and computer time.
