Another alternative, proposed by Pan, Fang and Chai,Chai:2013b is to use a localized version of Fermi-Amaldi exchange-correlation functional. The resulting exchange density functional, whose functional derivative has the correct asymptotic behavior, can be directly added to any semi-local density functional. Three variants of this method were proposed in Ref. Chai:2013b. The simplest of these, the strictly-localized Fermi-Amaldi (LFAs) scheme, is implemented in Q-Chem, for molecules consisting of atoms with .
