Distorted-wave cross sections are reported for the excitation of the B 3 Pi g, C3 Pi u and E3 Sigma g+ states of N2 by low-energy electron impact. We use a discrete-basis-set method to obtain the electron-molecule continuum wavefunctions. Differential and integrated cross sections are presented from near threshold up to 50 eV electron impact energy. Comparison is made with available experimental data and with other calculations.
