Abstract 



The Dirac exchange energy Ex has a density epsilon (x)(r) in a spherically symmetric tenelectron atomic ion that is determined by the idempotent firstorder density matrix (1 DM). In turn, this 1 DM has as its leading term in the 1/Z expansion, with Z the atomic number, the bare Coulomb result. This latter quantity is known analytically from the study of March and Santamaria [Phys. Rev. A 38, 5002 (1988)]. Here epsilon (x)(r) is calculated analytically, and presented graphically for Z=92 in this largeZ limit. The Slater approximation to the exchange potential Vx(r), namely, VSla(r)=2 epsilon (x)(r)/rho (r) with rho (r) the groundstate electron density, is also plotted for Z=92. In the largeZ limit, Vx(r) can be obtained by functional differentiation of the resultant exchange energy, and is expressed in terms of electron and kineticenergy densities. Numerical calculations, based on VSla(r) plus approximate corrections, are also presented.
