Selfconsistent calculation of the forces between two metallic half spaces
Abstract
A simple model of the forces between two pieces of the same metals is solved selfconsistently within a local densityfunctional approximation for the total energy. The results are compared with a recent calculation of nonlocal Van der Waals forces and the implications for the surface energy of metals are discussed.
