The phenomenon of electron correlation in atomic systems is examined and compared from the statistical, information theoretic, and energetic perspectives. Local correlation measures, based on the correlation coefficient, information entropies, and idempotency measure, are compared to the correlation energy density. Analysis of these local measures reveals(More)
Mutual information and information entropies in momentum space are proposed as measures of the nonlocal aspects of information. Singlet and triplet state members of the helium isoelectronic series are employed to examine Coulomb and Fermi correlations, and their manifestations, in both the position and momentum space mutual information measures. The triplet(More)
Mutual information is introduced as an electron correlation measure and examined for isoelectronic series and neutral atoms. We show that it possesses the required characteristics of a correlation measure and is superior to the behavior of the radial correlation coefficient in the neon series. A local mutual information, and related local quantities, are(More)
