Theoretical description of near edge EELS and XAS spectra

George A. Sawatzky

Applied and Solid State Physics Laboratory, Materials Science Centre, University of Groningen, 9747 AG Groningen, The Netherlands

In this communication I want to briefly describe the contents of the talk I presented at the lake Tahoe EELS conference. Since most of what I talked about has or will appear in print in another form, I will restrict myself to very brief descriptions of in my view relevant basic ideas and supply a list of references in which more details can be found.

7870D - X-ray absorption spectra.
7170 - Level splitting and interactions.
7920K - Other electron-impact emission phenomena.

Key words
Band structure -- EEL spectroscopy -- X ray absorption spectrometry -- Core levels -- Near edge structure
