Experimental studies of meson production through two-photon fusion in inelastic electron-nucleus scattering are now under way. A high-energy photon radiated by the incident electron is fused with a soft photon radiated by the nucleus to create the meson. The process takes place in the small-angle Coulomb region of nuclear scattering. We expound the theory for this production process as well as its interference with coherent-radiative-meson production. In particular, we investigate the distortion of the electron wave function due to multiple-Coulomb scattering.
