. We analyze the inverse problem of Density Functional Theory using a regularized variational method. First, we show that given k and a target density ρ , there exist potentials having k th excited mixed states which densities are arbitrarily close to ρ . The state can be chosen pure in dimension d = 1 and without interactions, and we provide numerical and theoretical evidence consistently leading us to conjecture that the same pure representability result holds for d = 2 , but that the set of…
