Approximate solution for the electronic density profile at the surface of jellium

View publication

Abstract

A simple family of trial functions for the electronic density at the surface of jellium, which accounts for Friedel oscillations and incorporates the Budd-Vannimenus theorem, is proposed. The free parameters are determined by energy minimization. Model calculations give good results for the work function and for the induced surface charge in the presence of an external field. © 1984 The American Physical Society.
