A computer program is presented which selects allowed transitions and calculates dipole and quadrupole transition probabilities for transitions with LS coupling and no equivalent electrons, based on an extension of the Coulomb approximation formalism to quadrupole and higher multipole transitions. Absorption oscillator strengths or f-values calculated by (1) the self-consistent-field method, (2) the scaled Thomas-Fermi method, (3) the Coulomb approximation method, (4) the variational method, and (5) the effective charge method for singlet and triplet transitions in neutral helium are presented and compared. The Coulomb approximation f-values calculated with the present computer program are found to be in good agreement with the results obtained by the more sophisticated methods.
