Densityfunctional exchangecorrelation potentials and orbital eigenvalues for light atoms
(1984) In Physical Review A 29(5). p.23222330 Abstract
 Using accurate correlated wave functions calculated earlier by Bunge and by Larsson, we have constructed the HohenbergKohnSham density functionals and exchangecorrelation (groundstate) potentials and have obtained orbital energy eigenvalues for a number of light atoms by in principle exact numerical algorithms. While the uppermost occupied densityfunctional eigenvalue always gives an exact excitation energy as has been shown earlier, we find that eigenvalues for deeper shells lie above the corresponding excitation energy. We have compared our essentially exact densityfunctional (DF) results with those obtained in the localdensity (LD) approximation. We find that the LD theory approximates the exchangecorrelation energy rather well,... (More)
 Using accurate correlated wave functions calculated earlier by Bunge and by Larsson, we have constructed the HohenbergKohnSham density functionals and exchangecorrelation (groundstate) potentials and have obtained orbital energy eigenvalues for a number of light atoms by in principle exact numerical algorithms. While the uppermost occupied densityfunctional eigenvalue always gives an exact excitation energy as has been shown earlier, we find that eigenvalues for deeper shells lie above the corresponding excitation energy. We have compared our essentially exact densityfunctional (DF) results with those obtained in the localdensity (LD) approximation. We find that the LD theory approximates the exchangecorrelation energy rather well, but that it gives larger errors in the exchangecorrelation potential and in the DF orbital eigenvalues. In all cases we have found that the LD error in the orbital eigenvalue is larger than the difference between the true DF eigenvalue and the corresponding exact excitation energy. Possible implications of these results for solidstate work are briefly discussed. (Less)
