Paper Abstract

Procedures are presented for the accurate calculation of the band energy of a solid within the framework of the Hartree-Fock approximation. The starting point is a self-consistent calculation using a Gaussian basis. The method is applied to study the band energy of metallic lithium as a function of temperature. Calculated density of states, optical conductivity, K X- ray emission edge, and some other electronic properties agree with the experiment. We have found small energy-band changes for lithium, most notably a widening of electronic core states, and transfer of external electrons from s-symmetry states to p-symmetry states.
