A core-particle coupling-model calculation of the negative-parity levels in Ca42 using random-phase-approximation states succeeds in explaining the strong fragmentation of the octupole strength in this nucleus relative to Ca40. The calculation also succeeds in producing the high density of odd-parity levels and their spectral positions but fails badly to account for the spectroscopic factors in the reaction K42(He3,d)Ca42.
