# Vosko, Wilk and Nusair electron

Local exchange and correlation functionals involve only the values of the electron spin densities. Slater and Xa are well-known local exchange functionals, and the local spin density treatment of Vosko, Wilk and Nusair (VWN) is a widely-used local correlation functional. [c.119]

The correlation energy of a uniform electron gas has been determined by Monte Carlo methods for a number of different densities. In order to use these results in DFT calculations, it is desirable to have a suitable analytic interpolation formula. This has been constructed by Vosko, Wilk and Nusair (VWN) and is in general considered to be a very accurate fit. It interpolates between die unpolarized ( = 0) and spin polarized (C = 1) limits by the following functional. [c.183]
