Line Lists for the A(2)Pi-X-2 Sigma(+) (Red) and B-2 Sigma(+)-X-2 Sigma(+) (Violet) Systems of Cn, (Cn)-C-13-N-14, and (Cn)-C-12-N-15, and Application To Astronomical Spectra

New red and violet system line lists for the CN isotopologues (CN)-C-13-N-14 and (CN)-C-12-N-15 have been generated. These new transition data are combined with those previously derived for (CN)-C-12-N-14, and applied to the determination of CNO abundances in the solar photosphere and in four red giant stars: Arcturus, the bright, very low-metallicity star HD 122563, and the carbon-enhanced metal-poor stars HD 196944 and HD 201626. When both red and violet system lines are detectable in a star, their derived N abundances are in good agreement. The mean N abundances determined in this work are also generally in accord with published values.
