The e,2e reaction of atomic and diatomic lithium is studied. In the atomic case, the problem is treated as a four electron system for which the conservation of the total spin produces a variety of exchange terms whose importance in the determination of the transition matrix element of the ionization process is studied systematically in a very large domain of incidence energy (50 eV to 5 keV) by applying in the small and intermediate energy domain an asymptotically exact distorted wave procedure. In the diatomic case, a model potential is employed for the K shell electrons and the problem is treated as a vertical transition from the lowest vibrational and rotational level of the fundamental electronic state of to the fundamental state of The comparison with experimental and recent theoretical results shows that the use of an all electron procedure improves the agreement with the experimental results.
