The HOLE card is equivalent to the EDGE card, but the shell is specified by a hole-code index. It includes the amplitude reduction factor just as the EDGE card does. If the entry for is less than 0.1, then will be estimated from atomic overlap integrals. Experimental values of are typically between 0.8 and 1.0. The defaults if the HOLE card is omitted are

For , the core-hole lifetime parameter ( ) is not tabulated in FEFF and is set equal to 0.1 eV, since the final state losses are then dominated by the self-energy. Use the EXCHANGE card to make adjustments ( ).
