Abstract : Compton profiles are calculated for L-shell electrons within the Born approximation by use of nonrelativistic 'Exact' hydrogenic bound and continuum state wave functions. The wave functions are expressed in parabolic coordinates and the resulting matrix elements are evaluated following the method of F. Bloch (1934). Impulse approximation profiles are calculated and comparisons with the 'Exact' profiles show that as expected, the two profiles lie very close to one another for weak-binding and high incident photon energies. Integrated profiles (incoherent scattering factors) are calculated and the impulse approximation results agree with the 'Exact' results over a wide range of bonding energies due to profile cross-over near the center.
