Collision strengths (Ω) have been calculated for all 7750 transitions among the lowest 125 levels belonging to the View the MathML source, and 2p23ℓ configurations of boron-like krypton, Kr XXXII, for which the Dirac Atomic R -matrix Code has been adopted. All partial waves with angular momentum J⩽40 have been included, sufficient for the convergence of Ω for forbidden transitions. For allowed transitions, a top-up has been included in order to obtain converged values of Ω up to an energy of 500 Ryd. Resonances in the thresholds region have been resolved in a narrow energy mesh, and results for effective collision strengths (ϒ) have been obtained after averaging the values of Ω over a Maxwellian distribution of electron velocities. Values of ϒ are reported over a wide temperature range below View the MathML source, and the accuracy of the results is assessed. Values of ϒ are also listed in the temperature range View the MathML source, obtained from the nonresonant collision strengths from the Flexible Atomic Code.
