On the vrepresentabilty problem in density functional theory: Application to noninteracting systems
Abstract
Based on a computational procedure for determining the functional derivative with respect to the density of any antisymmetric Nparticle wave function for a noninteracting system that leads to the density, we devise a test as to whether or not a wave function known to lead to a given density corresponds to a solution of a Schrödinger equation for some potential. We examine explicitly the case of noninteracting systems described by Slater determinants. Here, numerical examples for the cases of a onedimensional squarewell potential with infinite walls and the harmonic oscillator potential illustrate the formalism.
