Bibliographic Code:


The spectrum of radiation emitted by a hot optically thin plasma with abundances and equilibrium ionization balance appropriate to interstellar conditions has been calculated. The results at wavelengths shorter than 200 A are discussed for material in the electron-temperature range from 160,000 to 100 million K.
