We compute the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the nuclear coupled Schroedinger equations using ab initio electronic molecular properties available in the literature. Transition wavenumbers and spontaneous emission probabilities are calculated for all transitions belonging to B-X, C-X, B'-X, and D-X electronic band systems of HD when the upper rotational quantum number is below or equal to 10. We compare our results with available experimental values: the accuracy in the wavenumbers is on the order of 3 reciprocal centimetres, whereas the intensity properties are satisfactorily reproduced. The origin of the remaining discrepancies is analyzed. Description: Tables 5-10 display up to the rotational quantum number J'=10, our calculated term values, total emission probabilities and total dissociation probabilities for the rovibronic levels of B, C+, B', D+, C- and D- states. (B, C+, B', D+ levels have e parity [(-1)**J'] and C- and D- states have f parity [(-1)**(J'+1)]). Only levels with the same value of J' and the same parity are coupled together by rotational or radial coupling. We have labelled the states according to the Born-Openheimer (B.O.) electronic state of greatest electronic weight factor as defined in equation (2) of the accompanying paper inside each e or f manifold. Equation (2): ρ(T)= integral{(fSTvJ(R))2dR} For each rotational quantum number J' and inside each parity e or f we also indicate nu, the order of the level sorted with increasing energy term values irrespective of the B.O. state label, starting from the value of 1. Tables 11-16 display the spontaneous emission transition probabilities and compare our calculated transition wavenumbers with experimental ones. Values have been calculated up to J'=10. The calculated transition wavenumber expressed in reciprocal centimeters, is the difference between our calculated upper rovibronic energy term and the value corresponding to the lower electronic X state. When available, we have used experimental values derived for X levels. File Summary:

Global notes: Note (G1): Meaning of the mn code: m indicates the technique used to derive the energy level of the lower X rovibrational state. m=1: experimental X term value from Dabrowski and Herzberg (1976, Canadian Journal of physics, 54, 525) m=2: calculated X term value of Wolniewicz (1995) which takes into account the non-adiabatic correction and is close to experiment, when available, up to 0.01cm^-1 m=3: none of the former X terms values is available and we have used our calculated X terms which do not include non-adiabatic corrections and can differ up to 4cm-1 from the experiment. (This case occurs only for J"=10) n values refer to the experimental determination of transition wavenumbers: n=0: no experimental information n=1: Dabrowski and Herzberg (1976, Canadian Journal of physics, 54, 525) n=2: Dehmer and Chupka (1983, J.
