Origins—The Thomas-Fermi Theory

  • N. H. March
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)

Abstract

This book is concerned entirely with the description of electronic systems, whether atoms, molecules, perfect or defect solids, in terms of the electron density. Much of the ensuing discussion will be concerned with the ground state, in which the number of electrons per unit volume at r will be denoted by n(r). The objective of the theory of the inhomogeneous electron gas is to describe the properties of the ground state by this electron density, as well as to calculate this quantity n(r).

Keywords

Kinetic Energy Density Potential Energy Versus Gradient Expansion Fermi Hole Exchange Energy Density 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
