Results from the application of optical potential, relativistic optical potential, relativistic convergent close-coupling, and binary encounter Bethe models to electron scattering from gas-phase cadmium are presented. In particular, integral cross sections for elastic scattering, summed discrete electronic-state excitation, and ionization scattering processes are reported over an extended incident electron-energy range. Total cross sections are constructed by taking their sum. Measurements are presented for elastic scattering and for excitation to the 51P1 state. The theoretical and experimental results are compared to previous calculations and measurements. Recommended electron cross-section datasets are constructed over an incident electron energy range of 0.01-10 000 eV.
