Hi, i can't understan clearly the Exchange-correlation term that appears in the develop of DFT. The only thing i know is that the first comes from the pauli exclusion principle, and the second from the quantum part of the coulomb interaction between electrons. Am i right?? but i wan't to go deeper (not equations necessary) only a little help to understand where exactly this term comes and things like that. Thanks in advance for your help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
