ΔSCF density-functional calculations are reported for Auger, and core level binding energy shifts in sp-bonded metals. The basic model, atom-in-jellium-vacancy, gives good agreement with experiment, especially in the Auger case. The chemical and relaxation contributions to the shifts are discussed. The shifts are calculated also by using the thermochemical model and the results obtained are in agreement with experimental data. The applicability of the "excited-atom" approach to the Auger energy shifts is found restricted.
