The differential, integrated elastic, total and momentum transfer cross sections along with Sherman function for the elastic scattering of electrons and positrons by cadmium atoms have been evaluated from the partial wave solution of the Dirac relativistic scattering equations for a projectile-atom complex potential at the energy range 6.4 eV < E < 1.0 keV. For various scattering quantities, a comparison of our results exhibits better agreement with the experimental data than the other available theoretical values.
