    • Abstract


      We present here an approximate scheme to obtain the complex frequency-dependent local field correction,G (q, ω). Using the equation of motion approach we develop here a methodology from which the results obtained by earlier workers, for density-density response function of an electron gas, can be arrived at in a simple systematic manner. We study in detail an approximation made along the similar lines as Singwi and coworkers, which leads to a compact expression for a complex frequency-dependent local field correction. We give results for damping coefficient of long wavelength plasmons which depends on ImG(q, ω). The real and imaginary parts ofG(q, ω) as functions ofω for various values ofq are also calculated. The dynamic structure factorS(q, ω) is evaluated forq=1.6qF and compared with earlier theoretical and experimental results.
