The response of the uniform electron gas (UEG) to an external perturbation is of paramount importance for many applications. Recently, highly accurate results for the static density response function and the corresponding local field correction have been provided both for warm dense matter [2019 J. Chem. Phys. 151 194104] and strongly coupled electron liquid [2020 Phys. Rev. B 101 045129] conditions based on exact ab initio path integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) simulations. In the present work, we… 

Assessing the accuracy of hybrid exchange-correlation functionals for the density response of warm dense electrons
