A perturbation series method for obtaining LEED intensities from the transfer matrix method is reported. This approach is based on simple physical considerations and is adaptable to a variety of surface structures. The intensities obtained from this approximation are of comparable accuracy with those obtained by the complete procedure but the computation times are considerably reduced. The method holds promise for intensity calculations on crystals with surface layers of adsorbed atoms.
