Moshinsky introduced an exactly soluble model of a two-electron atom consisting of two spin-1/2 particles interacting via harmonic forces and moving in a harmonic-oscillator potential. Here, the exact ground-state density rho(r) is related to the (also analytically known) Hartree-Fock density rho(HF)(r). The generalization to the off-diagonal matrix gamma(r,r(')) is then effected, this being related to the idempotent gamma(HF)(r,r('))/2. This exact information on this "model atom" prompts us to propose an approximate form of gamma(r,r(')) for the He-like ions, the H-2 molecule and, in general, all two-electron systems. gamma(r,r(')) is constructed solely from the exact rho(r) and its Hartree-Fock counterpart. Some detailed treatment of the two-electron Hookean atom with spring constant k=1/4 (atomic units) is also presented.
