Recently it has been demonstrated (Nazarov, Phys. Rev. B. 59 (1999) 9866) that the characteristics of elastic scattering of electrons near a surface dramatically influence the outcome of inelastic scattering. In this paper we present the results of the jellium model time dependent local density approximation calculations for simple metal surfaces using low energy electron diffraction elastic scattering wave functions in the kinematic approximation.
