Title
Force- associated with the exchange-correlation potential in the neutral Ne atom
Author
Abstract
Following an electrostatic interpretation of the force F-xc = -partial derivative V-xc/partial derivative r associated with the exchange-correlation potential V-xc(r), we present both analytical and numerical results for F-xc(r) in the Ne atom..The basic input is an existing quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculation of the ground-state electron density rho (r) in this atom. The analytic form of a partial derivative(xc)/partial derivative r is in terms of the number of electrons Q(r) enclosed in a sphere of radius r centred on the nucleus, plus two phases needed to characterize the radial wavefunctions of density functional theory. Eigenvalue equations are presented for these phases, and used numerically. A brief discussion is added on the result of replacing the QMC ground-state density by its Hartree-Fock counterpart.
