High energy e- e- scattering, ratio inelastic/elastic cross-sections?

  1. If we were to scatter high energy (say E>>m_e) electrons off each other is there a hand wavy argument to come up with a rough estimate for the ratio of inelastic to elastic cross-sections?

    Would the dominate inelastic collision between two high energy electrons result in a single photon emitted?

    Thanks for any help!

    "electron-electron interaction"

    Google the above.
