Recent experimental studies of the giant electric resonance region in 58Ni and 40Ca with inelastically scattered $\alpha$-particles of energy E$_{\alpha}$ = 240 MeV are analyzed within a microscopic nuclear structure model.
to 0pt    The model includes the continuum RPA and more complex 1p1h$\otimes$phonon configurations. By superimposing the contributions of different multipoles up to L = 4 we obtain good agreement with the newest (reanalyzed) data for the isoscalar monopole strength and for the total ( $\alpha,\alpha'$) cross section in 58Ni. Agreement with experiment for the isoscalar monopole resonance in 40Ca is obtained too. We emphasize the necessity of using microscopic transition densities and discuss consequences for the analyses of such experiments in light and medium mass nuclei. It is shown that the gross structure of the isoscalar monopole resonance in 40Ca is caused by the 1p1h$\otimes$phonon configurations.
