Abstract [en]

The value of the two-particle density function at coalescence P-2(ontop)(r) = rho(2)(r, r) is frequently used as an additional variable for formulating approximate exchange-correlation or correlation functionals. Here, its applications as one of the key variables for the construction of new DFT (preferably multi-determinant) functionals is investigated. The basic formalism is presented and it is shown that this replacement avoids some difficulty to construct a Fock matrix in a ROKS (restricted open-shell Kohn-Sham) method and also to reduce the ‘double counting’ of correlation energy in CASDFT (complete active space density functional theory) calculations. Calculations of excitation energies for transition metals and dissociation curves for diatomic molecules are presented as an example.
