Abstract
A parametric model for lanthanide and actinide atomic and crystal energy levels is presented that correlates trends in Hartree-Fock calculations with empirically determined atomic parameters in such a way that predictions for unclassified complex cases can be made from the analysis of simpler ones. When appropriate effective operators, including electrostatic operators up to the third rank for ƒ^{N} configurations and magnetic operators up to the second rank for ƒ^{N} and ƒ^{N}d shells, are used in the parametric Hamiltonian, statistical errors of 10–20 cm^{−1} are typical for the simpler examples presented.
