In this chapter, the main formulations of the dynamical theory of electron diffraction are outlined. These include the defining equations, forward scattering, the evolution operator, the projection approximation, semi-reciprocal space, the two-beam approximation, the eigenvalue approach, translational invariance, dispersion surfaces, the multislice formulation, the Born series and other approximations.
