The authors present a model to calculate the population density of the 4p group and the total ionisation coefficient. They also measured the density of the 4p and higher groups in a highly ionised magnetically confined hollow cathode arc discharge at 10/sup -3/ torr. From this combined information the atom density n/sub a/ can be determined. Overpopulations with respect to the Saha-Boltzmann relation vary from 350 (4p group) to 30-60 (higher groups)
