The x-ray K-emission spectrum and the soft-x-ray absorption spectrum are calculated for diamond and compared with experiment. The influence of transition matrix elements, calculated in a one-electron approximation, is discussed. Binding-energy corrections on the core and valence states are estimated and used to explain observed shifts between band transition energies and experimental data. Approximate methods are used to study localized valence relaxation effects on the transition matrix elements in emission.
