Distorted-wave-approximation calculations are reported for the excitation of the b u+3 and B u+1 states of H2 by electron impact. A discrete-basis-set method is used to obtain the electron-molecule continuum wave functions. Differential and integrated cross sections are presented from near threshold up to 60-eV electron impact energy. Comparison is made with other theoretical results and experimental data.
