The close-coupling approach to electron-helium single ionization is analyzed and several ways of defining the scattering amplitudes are determined, for both equal- and unequal-energy outgoing electrons. Nevertheless, the various definitions all lead to the same cross section. The convergent close-coupling (CCC) method with Laguerre (CCC-L) and box-based (CCC-B) target functions is applied to calculate electron-impact ionization of helium for the cases where the two outgoing electrons have equal energy. Excellent absolute agreement with experiment is obtained for all available cases of comparison.
