The self-consistent-field (SCF) expansion method was applied to the calculation of the analytical wave functions for several higher excited states of atomic aluminum. The Hartree–Fock total energies are represented to about five significant figures. The cusp condition was precisely satisfied for all the orbitals. The nodal condition was well satisfied for the outermost orbitals of each symmetry. The results supplement previous data, inter alia, for the calculation of transition probabilities.
