The relativistic convergent close-coupling method is applied to calculate integrated cross sections for the electron-impact excitation of Sn. Cross sections have been calculated for excitations to all states in the 5s5p, , 5s6s and 5s5d manifolds from the ground state for projectile electron energies ranging from 24 eV to 500 eV. The total discrete inelastic scattering cross section is also presented.
