The lines of the transitions between the subordinate levels of the CIII, NIII etc. ions are observed in the spectra of planetary nebulae (PN) (1). Their theoretical intensities may be found by solving the stationarity equations and accounting for both the recombination and cascade radiative transitions. It is possible to calculate the recombination spectra in various approaches: the single- or multi-configuration approximations (SCA and MCA) making use of both the superposition of configurations (SC) or the multiconfigurational Hartree-Fock-Jucys equations (2), taking into consideration the contribution of the dielectronic recombination to the intensities of the recombination lines. The energy spectra, the transition probabilities etc., as a rule ought to be calculated in the intermediate coupling scheme (2). Both analytical or numerical (e.g. Hartree-Fock) wave functions may be adopted.
