Abstract

The non-existence of the functional derivative of the Hohenberg-Kohn functional at the ground-state density of a semiconductor earlier discussed in the literature2,3 is analyzed. Arguments are given that this non-existence is not connected with the discontinuity of the (ordinary) derivative of the functional with respect to the particle number N as discussed by Perdew and Levy2.
