“Adiabatic Connection”: Coupling constant integration
Introduce λ in vC ,λ e2
r − r′ , scaling of Coulomb repulsion. In DFT, functionals depend only on n and e2, ħ, m.
With λ, DFT holds again, but functionals depends on λ.
Thus, for a given n, there exists an external potential vλ that
gives n as the ground state density.
Then, let n(r) be the ground state density corresponding to λ=1, 11 i.e., to v≡vλ=1≡v1 and full Coulomb repulsion.
Denote Hλ = T + Vλ + λU.
Here, Vλ≡∫d3r vλ(r) n(r),
where at each λ, vλ is that potential which gives n, i.e., n(r) is
fixed as λ varies between 0 and 1.
Also, HλΨλ = ελΨλ 12 Hellman-Feynman theorem gives

∂λ ε0 = T[n] + ∫d3r v0 n(r)
= Ts[n] + ∫d3r v0 n(r): non-interacting system λ=1: ε1 = Ts[n] + ∫d3r v1 n(r) + UH[n] + EXC[n]
(By definition, EXC contains T-Ts and U-UH. EXC can be decomposed as
EX+EC, where EX is due to Pauli principles and EC is due to correlations.)
