The total K vacancy production probability of both collision partners in a heavy-ion-atom collision is calculated, assuming that two processes contribute, a singlecollision process where 2po and 2 p a vacancies are created by direct ionisation of the united atom and subsequently redistributed, and a double-collision process where a 2 p a vacancy is created in the first collision and partially transferred in the second. The model used for the single-collision process is valid for slow collisions
