Energy levels and radiative rates for transitions among the lowest 60 fine-structure levels belonging to the (1s(2)) 2s(2)2p(5), 2s2p(6), and 2s(2)2p(4)3l configurations of F-like Mo XXXIV have been calculated using the fully relativistic GRASP code. Additionally, collision strengths for transitions among these levels have also been computed over a wide energy range below 3200 Ry. using the Dirac Atomic R-matrix Code. Resonances have been resolved in a fine energy mesh in order to calculate the effective collision strengths. Results for radiative rates, collision strengths, and excitation rates are presented for transitions from the lowest three levels to higher lying states. Comparisons with other available results are made, and the accuracy of the present data is assessed. Energy levels are expected to be accurate to within 1%, while other parameters are probably accurate to better than 20%.
