We present three explicit formulas for the number of electronic configurations in an atom, i.e. the number of ways to distribute Q electrons in N subshells of respective degeneracies g1, g2, …, gN.

Finite temperature scaling in density functional theory

ABSTRACT A previous analysis of scaling, bounds, and inequalities for the non-interacting functionals of thermal density functional theory (DFT) is extended to the full interacting functionals. The

Particle conservation in dynamical density functional theory

The canonical free energy functional is obtained, which yields the adiabatic interparticle forces of overdamped Brownian motion, using an exact and one of the most advanced approximate hard core free energy functionals, which obtain excellent agreement with simulations.

Thermal Density Functional Theory: Time-Dependent Linear Response and Approximate Functionals from the Fluctuation-Dissipation Theorem.

The van Leeuwen proof of linear-response time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) is generalized to thermal ensembles, which produces a natural method for generating new thermal exchange-correlation approximations.

How the structure of a confined fluid depends on the ensemble: Hard spheres in a spherical cavity

The equilibrium structure of a hard-sphere fluid confined in a small spherical cavity is investigated. In such systems the statistical mechanical ensembles are no longer equivalent and we consider

Calculations of canonical averages from the grand canonical ensemble.

This work presents a method to compute averages in the canonical ensemble based on calculations of the expectation values in the grand canonical ensemble.

Thermodynamics of Small Systems

It is shown in this paper that the differential equations of macroscopic thermodynamics can be generalized in such a way that they apply as well to small (i.e., nonmacroscopic) systems. Conventional

Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics

In the preceding chapter we discussed the microscopic foundations of extended irreversible thermodynamics through fluctuation theory. The present chapter deals with more general methods of

We present a general and formally exact method to obtain the canonical one-body density distribution and the canonical free energy from direct decomposition of classical density functional results in

Fermion–boson transmutation and comparison of statistical ensembles in one dimension

The theoretical description of interacting fermions in one spatial dimension is simplified by the fact that the low‐energy excitations can be described in terms of bosonic degrees of freedom. This

Self-Consistent Equations Including Exchange and Correlation Effects

From a theory of Hohenberg and Kohn, approximation methods for treating an inhomogeneous system of interacting electrons are developed. These methods are exact for systems of slowly varying or high

Thermal Properties of the Inhomogeneous Electron Gas

A variational property of the ground-state energy of an electron gas in an external potential $v(\mathrm{r})$, derived by Hohenberg and Kohn, is extended to nonzero temperatures. It is first shown

Density-functional theory of atoms and molecules

Current studies in density functional theory and density matrix functional theory are reviewed, with special attention to the possible applications within chemistry. Topics discussed include the

THIS little volume is not an ordinary text-book, dignified, dull and well printed (hence expensive), but an informal communication of ideas, fascinating, amusing and only hectographed (hence cheap).
