Abstract We simulate the multiple scattering effects occurring in an ({ital e},2{ital e}) experiment for a free-electron solid. Realistic cross sections for elastic and inelastic scattering events are used, for all the electrons involved. The aim of this paper is to simulate a real ({ital e},2{ital e}) experiment, and investigate how the multiple scattering parameters used affect the relation between the electronic structure of the solid and the actually measured intensity. Good agreement is found, on a semiquantitiative level, between the simulations and the actual experiments. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
