The radiationless decay of the Xe N4, 5 levels is investigated theoretically. The strong influence of the giant resonance in the 5s5p5(1P)εf channel on the partial and total Auger widths via the interchannel mixing is revealed. The computed widths of the N4 and N5 levels, equal to 105.9 and 109.6meV, respectively, are in excellent agreement with the measured values 104(3) and 111(3)meV (Jurvansuu et. al 2001 Phys. Rev. A 64 012502). The shape of the computed N4, 5OO Auger spectrum is in good agreement with the measured one. Interchannel interaction reduces the probability of the 5p5p - 4dεg Auger decay by more than an order of magnitude. This conclusion is supported by the good agreement between computed and measured Auger electron angular distribution parameters.
