    Angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES) is the major experimental tool for probing the electronic structure of crystalline surfaces. ARPES has also proven very useful for oriented molecules through the so-called orbital tomography technique. When the photon energy is tuned to a core-valence resonance, the valence band information of ARPES is augmented with 
    chemical and orbital selectivity inherent in the X-ray absorption step. This suggests that resonant ARPES can be used as a element-selective probe of the valence band structure of materials [1]. Although experimentally feasible, resonant ARPES is only rarely performed, presumably because of a lack of theoretical analysis tools. In this talk I will summarize our theoretical work on resonant and non-resonant ARPES. First a method for ARPES calculations based on real-space multiple 
    scattering theory is introduced and results obtained for metal surfaces, graphite and organic molecules are presented with emphasis on the polarization and energy dependence of the spectra [2-4]. Second, the theory of resonant ARPES is discussed both in the framework of the independent particle approximation [5] and on the basis of many-body multiplet theory combined with scattering calculations for the emitted electron. The latter theory fully explains the recent observation of normal and reversed angular momentum transfer in resonant photoemission from a Ni surface [6].
