Abstract:

Some particular cases of the x-ray edge and recoil problems are examined. The usual independent-particle theory is evaluated exactly for the case in which the excitation introduces a full virtual level into the conduction band. These results make contact with studies of rare gas pair absorption in metals and also afford a comparison with earlier theories. Several aspects of the difficulties introduced by the electron-electron interactions in real metals are also discussed.
