Self-interaction correction for energy band calculations: Application to LiCl

Academic Article


  • We present a method for incorporating the self-interaction correction (SIC) to the local density approximation in energy-band calculations of crystals. A periodic SIC potential is derived using the Wannier representation. The method is applied to a LiCl crystal yielding remarkable improvement in band gap and core levels. Comparison of the computed density of states is made with photoemission work. © 1982.
