We extend the three-layer model for energy loss calculation to include many-body effects in an ab initio framework. The electron energy loss spectrum of the C͑100͒2 ϫ 1 surface is calculated and compared with the existing experimental results. We show how many-body effects, namely self-energy, local-fields, and electronhole interaction, deeply influence the dielectric response and how their inclusion is essential to have good agreement with the experiment.
