Introducing the ELF topological analysis in the field of quasirelativistic quantum calculations

Abstract : We present an original formulation of the electron localization function (ELF) in the field of relativistic two-component DFT calculations. Using I2 and At2 species as a test set, we show that the ELF analysis is suitable to evaluate the spin-orbit effects on the electronic structure. Beyond these examples, this approach opens up new opportunities for the bonding analysis of large molecular systems involving heavy and super-heavy elements.
