Density Functional Calculations for Molecules and Clusters — Lin, LinO, Cn

  • R. O. Jones


Applications of density functional (DF) methods to molecules and atomic clusters have expanded greatly in recent years. The reasons for this are not hard to find: DF calculations using the local spin density (LSD) approximation are free of adjustable parameters and can be applied to systems where accurate calculations of the many-electron wave function are not yet possible. Furthermore, the use of modifications of the LSD approximation to the exchange-correlation energy has resulted in significant improvements in the calculated formation energies of numerous small molecules [1]. This has helped overcome the long-standing reservations of many in the chemical community, and the DF method has found favor in many applications to larger molecules and clusters.
