Effect of radiation on compressibility of hot dense sodium and iron plasma using improved screened hydrogenic model with l splitting

High pressure investigations of matter involve the study of strong shock wave dynamics within the materials which gives rise to many thermal effects leading to dissociation of molecules, ionization

Statistical atom: Some quantum improvements

The Thomas-Fermi model is improved by simultaneously introducing three different quantum corrections. The first concerns the nonlocality of quantum mechanics; we go beyond the von Weizs\"acker

Thomas-Fermi model: The leading correction

The correct treatment of strongly bound electrons is grafted smoothly onto the Thomas-Fermi computation of the total binding energy of neutral atoms. This provides a clearcut demonstration of the

For dealing with atoms involving many electrons the accurate quantum theory, involving a solution of the wave equation in many-dimensional space, is far too complicated to be practicable. One must

Temperature Behavior of the Thomas-Fermi Statistical Model for Atoms

Abstract : The usual theoretical calculations of equations of state and specific heats, particularly at high temperatures and pressures, are dependent on the Thomas-Fermi statistical model of the

A near-nucleus correction for the finite-temperature Thomas-Fermi model

The finite-temperature Thomas-Fermi model has been used for many years to describe the electronic structure of hot dense plasmas. The authors investigates a simple correction to this model which

LXXXII. The binding energy of the Thomas-Fermi Atom

Abstract The Thomas-Fermi statistical model of the atom leads to the formula 20·92Z 7,3 ev for the total binding energy of an atom with atomic number Z, but this formula gives values which are too

Thomas-Fermi model: The second correction

A simple derivation is given for the first quantum correction to the Thomas-Fermi kinetic energy . Its application to the total binding energy of neutral atoms exploits the technique for handling

Generalized-gradient-approximation noninteracting free-energy functionals for orbital-free density functional calculations

We develop a framework for orbital-free generalized gradient approximations (GGAs) for the noninteracting free energy density and its components (kinetic energy, entropy) based upon analysis of the
