The interpretation of the triply differential cross sections for ionisation of inner-shell states of high-Z atoms by relativistic electrons is discussed for the case of coplanar asymmetric scattering geometry. It is demonstrated that both strong-field and relativistic interference effects lead to distinct structures in the experimental data. Elements of a similar analysis of spin asymmetries measured in experiments with transversely polarised electrons are also presented.
