In this thesis electronic structure of atomic chromium, rubidium and bromine are studied experimentally and theoretically through transitions and decay processes originating from selected M-shell hole states. The experiments are conducted with traditional methods of electron spectroscopy as well as more recent multicoincidence methods using pulsed synchrotron radiation and a magnetic bottle spectrometer. The observed electronic transitions are theoretically simulated with multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock method. Finally, the calculations are used to interpret the measured spectra to investigate the energy level structure and electron dynamics of the studied elements.
