Abstract

A formula is given for the cross section of electron–electron bremsstrahlung in the rest system of the target electron. It is in particular appropriate for the calculation of photon spectra in astrophysical applications, e.g., if the primary electrons have energy distributions in the form of a power law. For the long-wavelength limit of the spectrum the cross section is specified in closed form.
