Title: Generalized gradient approximations to density functional theory: comparison with exact results
Authors: Filippi, Claudia

Abstract: In order to assess the accuracy of commonly used approximate exchange-correlation density functionals, we present a comparison of accurate exchange and correlation potentials, exchange energy densities and energy components with the corresponding approximate quantities. Four systems are used as illustrative examples: the model system of two electrons in a harmonic potential and the De, Be and Ne atoms. A new ingredient in the paper is the separation of the exchange-correlation potential into exchange and correlation according to the density functional theory definition.
