Measuring nebular temperatures: The effect of new collision strengths with equilibrium and κ-distributed electron energies

Nicholls , David; Dopita, Michael; Sutherland, Ralph; Kewley, Lisa; Palay, Ethan


In this paper we develop tools for observers to use when analyzing nebular spectra for temperatures and metallicities, with two goals: to present a new, simple method to calculate equilibrium electron temperatures for collisionally excited line flux ratio
