We report calculated cross sections for elastic and electronically inelastic collisions of low-energy electrons with sulfur hexafluoride, SF6. Elastic cross sections are computed within the fixed-nuclei approximation, with polarization effects incorporated. Inelastic cross sections for nine low-lying states are computed in a few-channel approximation. We compare our cross sections to previous experimental and computational results where possible.
