We review recent analytical work on mirroring and mimicking behavior of resonance profiles in different partial cross sections. This work is related to the work of Fano and Cooper on resonance profiles in total cross sections and that of Starace on resonance profiles in partial cross sections. Applications of the new theories (describing mirroring and mimicking behavior) to recent experimental measurements and theoretical predictions for photoionization, photodetachment, and Auger spectroscopy in the vicinity of resonance structures are discussed.
