The photoabsorption cross section near the K edge in krypton gas has been measured using synchro- tron radiation. Several features for simultaneous multielectron excitations were detected and analyzed by the use of the shakeup and shakeoff probabilities and their dependence on the photon energy. Previous observations of the [1s3p], [1s3d], and [1s4p] transitions have been confirmed. A transition is found between [1s3p] and [1s3d] multiple excitations and identified as a three-electron excitation [1s3d4p].
