According to time-dependent density functional theory, the exact exchange-correlation kernel f$_{xc}$(n, q, $\omega$) determines not only the ground-state energy but also the excited-state energies/lifetimes and time-dependent linear density response of an electron gas of uniform density n $=$ 3/(4$\pi$r$^3_s$). Here we propose a parametrization of this function based upon the satisfaction of exact constraints. For the static ($\omega$ = 0) limit, we modify the model of Constantin and Pitarke…

Interpretations of ground-state symmetry breaking and strong correlation in wavefunction and density functional theories

Time-dependent density functional theory is used to show quantitatively that the static charge-density wave in a low-density jellium is a soft plasmon, as found from the frequency moments of the spectral function, calculated from a recent constraint-based wavevector- and frequency-dependent jellsium exchange-correlation kernel.

Formation energy puzzle in intermetallic alloys: Random phase approximation fails to predict accurate formation energies

We performed density functional calculations to estimate the formation energies of intermetallic alloys. We used two semilocal approximations, the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) by

Matter at extreme temperatures and pressures — commonly known as warm dense matter (WDM) in the literature — is ubiquitous throughout our Universe and occurs in a number of astrophysical objects such



Exact dynamical exchange-correlation kernel of a weakly inhomogeneous electron gas.

It is shown that in the limit of weak nonuniformity the coefficient alpha has a simple and exact expression in terms of the ground-state density and the frequency-dependent kernel of a uniform electron gas at the average density.

Simple dynamic exchange-correlation kernel of a uniform electron gas

We propose a simple dynamic exchange-correlation kernel of the uniform electron gas. We model the reduction of the electron-electron interaction due to the short-range exchange-correlation effects by

Excitation energies from time-dependent density-functional theory beyond the adiabatic approximation.

It is found that the observed problems with the nonadiabatic correction have two main sources: the currents associated with the s-->p excitations are highly nonuniform and, in particular, change direction between atomic shells, and the so-called exchange-correlation kernels of the homogeneous electron gas are incompletely known in the high-density atomic core regions.

Analytical expressions for the local-field factor G(q) and the exchange-correlation kernel K_{xc}(r) of the homogeneous electron gas

We present an analytical expression for the local-field factor G(q) of the homogeneous electron gas which reproduces recently published quantum Monte Carlo data by Moroni, Ceperley, and Senatore
