Local Exchange-Correlation Potentials

Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


This review will summarize some recent discussions about the problem how to choose a local potential to approximate the effects of exchange and correlation in electron structure problems. We shall limit ourselves to simple aspects of the problem and emphasize explicit results which may be directly useful for electron structure calculations.
