The ab initio quasirelativistic Hartree–Fock approximation was used to determine spectroscopic parameters for the multicharged tungsten ions with an open 4p shell. The configuration interaction method based on the transformed radial orbitals was applied to include the electron-correlation effects. The relativistic effects were taken into account in the Breit–Pauli approximation for the quasirelativistic Hartree–Fock radial orbitals. The complete energy level spectra were calculated for the 4s24pN, 4s24pN–14d and 4s4pN+1 configurations of the tungsten ions from W43+ to W38+.
