Inconsistent kinetic energy functionals of electron gases in the presence of inhomogeneous magnetic fields


The two formally equivalent kinetic energy functionals of an electron gas in the presence of inhomogeneous magnetic fields give inconsistent results when used in a Gordon-Kim (interacting closed-shell atom) calculation. This incon- sistency is a direct measure of the accuracy of the Thomas-Fermi (slowly varying potential) assumption for the system studied. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
