Dharma-wardana and Perrot (1982) mentioned that the Friedel sum rule can be satisfied by as few as 8 to 10 /-terms. Nearest Neighbor Effects in the Ion Sphere Model The effects of the ion-ion correlations are treated by the ion sphere model through the confinement of the ion together with Z bound + free electrons in the ion sphere enclosure, and the assumption that no other ion or electron can penetrate into this volume. This picture can serve as a reasonable initial approximation. In a real plasma, however, such a static picture is an oversimplification that is very successful for the computation of several plasma quantities but needs refinement when some other quantities are required.
1986). Some Useful Results The TF model can be used to obtain useful scaling laws for several atomic properties. For example, the scaling of the ionization potential of a given ion can be derived using the following rather simple reasoning: The number of bound electrons per ion isZb = Z ~ Z. Assuming that these electrons fill up Bohr orbitals up to some principal quantum number np, their number can also be estimated by The ionization energy, ITF, of a bound electron from this last bound state into the continuum is, approximately, ITF = Z2EH/n^,.
The electrons pile up around the central ion, some forming negativeenergy bound states, others occupying positive-energy states (Dharma-wardana and Perrot, 1982). The ions form a charge depletion around the central ion. Their distribution is not assumed to have a sharp discontinuity on the ion sphere boundaries, as in the ion sphere models, but rather increases continuously as the distance from the central ion increases. The ion density attains its asymptotic value at a distance of several ion sphere radii from the central ion.
