The effects of core relaxation on the shape-resonant K-shell photoionization cross section in N2 are shown to be very significant. Cross relaxation produces substantial broadening and shifting of the shape resonance to higher energy. The results suggest that the frozen-core approximation may not be an appropriate model for K-shell photoionization involving a low-energy shape resonance.
