  1. Yang, W, Generalized adiabatic connection in density functional theory, Journal of Chemical Physics, vol. 109 no. 23 (1998), pp. 10107-10110 [doi] .

    A generalized adiabatic connection is developed for density functional theory. The method extends the well-known adiabatic connection formula and provides a general link between the Kohn-Sham and the physical system. When the complimentary error function is used as a special case, the expression for the exchange-correlation functional does not have the 1/r12 Coulomb component. The exact contributions from the physical system and the noninteracting system are established: The physical system limit has a dominant contribution, while the noninteracting system limit has no contribution. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
