Calculation of electron density and surface energy by variation method

Condensed Matter


Using the results of the electron density functional method the minimum of the energy functional was used for the calculation of simple, jellium metal surface electron densities. The results approximate rather closely the densities calculated by Lang [5] using a more exact method.
