Green, S., B.J. Garrison, W.A. Lester, Jr., and W.H. Miller, 1978: Collisional excitation of interstellar formaldehyde. Astrophys. J. Supp. Series, 37, 321-341, doi:10.1086/190531.

Previous calculations for rates of excitation of ortho-H2CO by collisions with He have been extended to higher rotational levels and kinetic temperatures to 80 K. Rates for para-H2CO have also been computed. Pressure-broadening widths for several spectral lines have been obtained from these calculations and are found to agree with recent data within the experimental uncertainty of 10%. Excitation of formaldehyde by collisions with H2 molecules is also discussed.
