Abstract : A compilation and a critical evaluation are given of absolute cross sections for ionization of atoms and diatomic molecules by electron impact. Experimental techniques used for ionization are surveyed. Selected relative cross sections for production of multiply charged ions and a brief discussion of relative cross section data near threshold are presented. Absolute limits are not set on the size of probable systematic errors in the various experiments. (Author)
