Abstract

The numerical solution of the Thomas-Fermi-Dirac-Weizsäcker variational equations for atomic many electron systems is discussed in terms of a spline representation. Accurate values for groundstate energies are obtained for the full range of the central charge and all degrees of ionisation.
