Measurements of the L2,3VV (V=valence) Auger spectrum of aluminum and the M4,5VV Auger spectrum of silver cannot be simply related to the valence-band density of states. The data for Al indicate a strong energy variation of the transition probability. For silver, the position and shape of the Auger spectrum are associated with multiplet splitting of localized double-d-hole final states.
