Example text

Still, its implicit influence is sensitively induced by means of the [ ρ ( x),V ( x) ] combinations that appear also in the definitions of a and b functionals, (81) and (83), via the local response function (78). This can be better seen if one rewrites the function (78) as L( x) = 1 ∇ 2 (ρ ( x)V ( x) ) − ρ ( x)∇ 2V ( x) − V ( x)∇ 2 ρ ( x) , 2 2 ∇V ( x ) (88) where, we can recognize that ρ ( x)V ( x) = ∇C A (89) according with the basic chemical action definition, (35) or (48). More, as we already learn from the chemical action interpretation, the definite integrals of response indices (81) and (83) can be decomposed on the appropriate Systematic Electronegativity and Hardness 39 sum of orbitals, as was done in (51), to further unify the orbital with the global nature of the computed “local” electronegativity and hardness density functionals (85)-(87).

Thus, this “plus value” chemical action contributes to stabilize the maximum chemical hardness at the end of bonding process. Another observation regards the cases where the chemical action does not appear explicitly. Still, its implicit influence is sensitively induced by means of the [ ρ ( x),V ( x) ] combinations that appear also in the definitions of a and b functionals, (81) and (83), via the local response function (78). This can be better seen if one rewrites the function (78) as L( x) = 1 ∇ 2 (ρ ( x)V ( x) ) − ρ ( x)∇ 2V ( x) − V ( x)∇ 2 ρ ( x) , 2 2 ∇V ( x ) (88) where, we can recognize that ρ ( x)V ( x) = ∇C A (89) according with the basic chemical action definition, (35) or (48).

Transforming the working electronic density function by multiplying it with the number of valence electrons, see equation (109), so fulfill the DFT basic constraint (28) and becoming compatible with the manyelectronic definition of electronegativity and hardness through the table 2; applying the saddle point approximation to evaluate the involved integrals in computing chemical action (35) and the response functionals (81) and (83), providing the working valence formulas (113), (115) and (116), respectively.
