All data in the tables is given in Hartree energy units, in which numerical values of unity are assigned to the mass m and charge e of the electron and to the reduced Planck's constant $$\hbar$$. In these units, the speed of light, c, is given by the inverse of the fine structure constant. We have used the 1986 CODATA recommended value of the fine structure constant to obtain the numerical value, c = 137.0359895, used in the RLDA AND ScRLDA calculations.
The header line for each element takes the form
Atomic number Chemical symbol Ground electronic configurationFour separate cases are then presented in successive columns:
Each column begins with the total energy in the given approximation and its decomposition into four parts:
Etot = Total energy Ekin = Kinetic energy Ecoul = Electron-electron interaction energy (Hartree term) Eenuc = Electron-nucleus interaction energy Exc = Exchange-correlation energy
These energies are then followed by a list of orbital eigenvalues. The orbital labels (e.g., 1s) are given to the left of all columns. The orbital labels and eigenvalues are presented in alternating boldface and plain type for ease of reading.
Conventions for orbital eigenvalues:
Those who wish to obtain all data in these tables may retrieve a compressed archive version of the original files. When decompressed and untarred, the archive, dftdata.tar.gz yields a directory containing one file and four subdirectories:
The configurations file contains the electronic configuration information presented elsewhere in this document. The directories each contain two subdirectories:
and each of these in turn contains the individual data files (92 files for atoms, 91 for cations). The data file name format, common to all directories, is "Atomic number" "Chemical symbol", e.g., 01H, 02He, 03Li, etc. For example, the fully qualified path name of the data file for neutral uranium treated in the RLDA approximation will be:
This file name convention facilitates simple report generation by standard Unix commands; some examples are shown below.
The essential information within each data file is identical to that described above. The first five lines contain the values of Etot, Ekin, Ecoul, Eenuc, and Exc, with obvious labels; each subsequent line contains an orbital eigenvalue with a label. The order of the orbital eigenvalues is identical to that described above, but the labelling scheme is different:
Our data file name convention facilitates report generation by standard Unix commands. Some simple examples follow:
